Question: 

Is Feb 20 too late to get Flu shot for 2 year old? A medical clinic staffer just told me they don't recommend getting the shot this late in the season

Answer: 

It is not too late for a 2 year old to get a flu shot. The timing of flu season is unpredictable and can vary in different parts of the country and from season to season. Seasonal flu activity often begins as early as October and November and can continue to occur as late as May. Please contact your local community health centre/public health unit and ask to speak to a public health nurse who will be able to answer any other questions you have. You will find the number here.
