Flu Season Preview

Posted:

(CNN)--Flu season is right around the corner.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there should be plenty of vaccines available this year.

C-D-C officials say just about everyone older than six months of age should get flu shots each year.

Last year, 41-percent of American adults were inoculated against seasonal flu.

This year, people 65 and older can choose a new, high dose form of the flu vaccine.

The flu shots should be available beginning in September.

Flu season typically runs from October to May.
