Dr. William Ferrar is reminding all of his patients to get the flu shot.
The immunization takes up to three weeks and flu starts as early as late November.
Along with the flu shot, consider getting a pneumonia shot, if you have diabetes, COPD, heart disease or several other conditions.
Don't mix the shingles shot with the flu shot unless you get them simultaneously in each arm.
