The CDC recommends getting children vaccinated more than two weeks prior to the start of the school year, as it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop.

Among children 6 months to 17 years, 62.6% received flu shots in the 2018-2019 year, meaning 27.7 million children were unvaccinated for the flu.
