In brief: Roughy Nov-Feb
This depends on where you live.
...Typically the flu hits earlier (Oct-Nov) in the west and north. The eastern and southern states get hit a little later, even Dec-Jan. Generally the flu cases will start decreasing around March. The CDC website is an excellent resource (www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivitysurv.htm). The flu contributes to 20, 000+ deaths in the US every year - get your flu shot!

In brief: NO concrete dates
Usually starts during fall season - september/october and can last through the spring.
.. Each year/ each area of country is different.. The flu vaccine should cover the season - so if you have not gotten one yet - there is still time and is still a good idea! thanks for the question!
