The 2010-2011 flu season is in its peak right now. Generally speaking, January and February are the height of flu season each year, though this can vary from location to location.
Hopefully, you got your flu shot this year. Everyone aged 6 months or older who has asthma should get a yearly flu shot, as we are considered a high risk population. This means that if a person with asthma gets the flu, they are at much higher risk of complications than a person who doesn't have asthma would be.
