Fact Finder: Flu shots, how early is too early?

Doctor offices, clinics and pharmacies are offering shots now, to help protect people from the flu -- but is it too early to immunize?

The health department says instead of predicting seasons, get vaccinated.

In recent years, manufacturers have been successful at matching the flu strain to the vaccine, and have been able to make the vaccine available sooner.
