Am I still in time to get vaccinated against the flu?

Am I still in time to get vaccinated against the flu?

Due to various personal situations, I haven’t been able to get the flu vaccine so far, am I still in time?

Dear Mrs,
the vaccination campaign began last October, however the peak of infections has not yet been reached and the flu will still circulate for several weeks in January and February, like every year. Considering that the vaccine takes a week to start protecting the body, there is still time to be able to get the vaccine in the next few weeks. An opportunity that must be considered, especially in so-called fragile people, i.e. elderly, suffering from chronic pathologies or immunosuppressed.
