    All of us got the flu shot already this year. It is compulsory at my workplace with dismissal as a penalty for those who don’t comply, but I would have gotten it anyways.
    Especially in a pandemic involving a respiratory disease you want to make sure you minimize the effect of other viruses that affect the same systems.
    There are many places and even doctors offices offering drive-thru flu shots.
    As for timing I would plan to get it now so you have time to build up immunity for flu season. January is a bit late. Doctors offices also keep running out of flu vaccine so I would plan on getting it quickly.

    It’s usually recommended in fall before the flu season begins...

    We all got flu shots. Advised to take this year. I just googled and went sam's club. Costco and other local stores takes most of the insurances.

    You can get it at your primary care. I get it every year for me and my family and even took one this year.
