When is the best time to get a flu shot?

I want to get a flu vaccine to avoid it at all costs. When is the best time to get the flu shot?

Late September or early October is the best time if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. It takes about 2 weeks after vaccination until protection begins.
Get your flu shot TODAY!! This is the beginning of flu season and it does take a few weeks for the vaccine to be fully effective!
