Based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC recommends the vaccine should be administered by the end of October, but vaccination should continue to be offered as long as influenza viruses are circulating locally and unexpired vaccine is available.
Vaccination too early in the season (e.g., July or August) may lead to suboptimal immunity later in the season, particularly among older adults.
Children aged 6 months through 8 years who require 2 doses, should receive their first dose as soon as possible after vaccines becomes available, and the second dose 4 weeks later.
