When do I need my flu shot?

In a weekly email I receive from the state health department it shows the state and national trends for the spread of influenza.

I’ve included it below. You can see that Tennessee as a whole (and I’d include Knoxville in particular) starts to see influenza infections in early December.

I recommend patients receive their vaccinations by the end of October. This gives the body time to make enough antibodies for adequate protection.
