The Georgia Department of Public Health recently announced that this year flu activity has become widespread throughout the state earlier than it has seen in recent years and is encouraging Georgians to get vaccinated for the virus as soon as possible.

“It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body,” says Kathleen E. Toomey, M.D., M.P.H., DPH commissioner. “So now is the time to get a flu shot.”
