Q.

Booster shot

Is there another booster shot to get if you had the flu shot already this year? We heard about an additional Flu Shot that a GP can prescribe on top of the normal flu shot?

Hi there

I think the booster is only for children, and only under specific circumstances. I find that the CDC site offers a lot of good advice with regards to the flu vaccine, and as long as you had a flu vaccine at the start of this flu season, it should be enough. I will copy the link below:
Good luck and stay safe!
