BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Health Department says it’s not too late for people to get their flu vaccines.

This is National Influenza Vaccination Week.

The Health Department says the flu is spreading in Vermont. Flu season usually peaks between December and February, and can extend to May.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine for people aged 6 months and older. Last year about 44 percent of Vermont adults received a flu vaccine.

Some people are at higher risk for flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, which can lead to hospitalization and sometimes death.
