Flu vaccines are coming available soon in private clinics and health units in Arkansas. Officials say the vaccine should be plentiful this season, unlike last year when there was a shortage. Health experts say October and November are the best time to receive a shot to be protected during the peak flu season of December to March. Flu shots are advised for children, six-months to 23-months-old, and elderly people. The C-D-C urges shots for people with heart, lung or kidney diseases, diabetes, asthma or illnesses that suppress the immune system such as AIDS. New this year is a vaccine that doesn`t have to be administered with a syringe. However, the nasal spray form of the vaccine is more expensive, Beets said, and is approved for use on people, ages five to 49.
