The best time of year to get the shot is the middle of the month, says CDC data.
And the best times to get a shot are in early February, which is when coronavirus cases are highest and there is the least risk, says Mark Weber, a professor at Emory University School of Public Health.
The CDC recommends getting the vaccine during the middle months of the year, when people are most contagious and most likely to spread the virus.
People can get the vaccine on the same day they visit a doctor, Weber says.
They can also get it at home and have it delivered to them in their car.
They should take precautions to protect themselves, especially if they are elderly or have underlying medical conditions.
People should also not let people in close proximity to them who have had the virus for more than 72 hours get vaccinated.
People who have been vaccinated in the last two weeks can get it the following week, if they haven’t already, Weber said.
People who have not been vaccinated can get vaccinated if they’re staying at home, if traveling, if taking medication, and if they have been at a doctor’s office for any other reason, according to the CDC.
If you get the flu, stay homeThe CDC says you should be careful not to get too much in your diet, because that can make you sick, but there are also times to be cautious about how much to eat, says Paul Offit, a doctor of internal medicine and immunology at University of California, San Francisco.
If there is a lot of activity in your home, you might want to limit your exposure to other people, especially in a room where there is already a lot going on, he says.
If there is no active infection, then you should still get vaccinated, Offit says.
If your family has a history of pneumonia, you should also avoid exposure to the respiratory system, especially during cold weather, Weber suggests.
People can get influenza during a cold or flu season.
People should take antibiotics if they suspect they have a respiratory infection, such as pneumonia, if the symptoms persist, he adds.
People with a history or possible diagnosis of influenza should stay home during the flu season, and people who are hospitalized should also stay home, Offis says.
People may also want to avoid eating out during the influenza season, especially with food contaminated with the virus, especially at fast food restaurants, because the virus can spread very quickly, he suggests.
People also should not eat frozen foods or take medications that contain the antiviral drug zanamivir, such, as ibuprofen and naproxen, which can be very dangerous if taken too often, Offitt says.
