JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now)- Health officials say Mississippians need to prepare for flu season.
It generally doesn't get rolling for another month or so, but experts say the one predictable thing about the flu is its tendency to be unpredictable.
Doctors say now is the time to get the flu vaccine. That's because it can take up to two weeks to be fully immunized. Last year, flu season came early and with a vengeance.
