Many doctors' offices are getting their supplies of flu vaccines in for the season.
Dr. John Moore says Botetourt Pediatric Associates just started its flu shot clinics this week. He says now is the right time to make an appointment to get your child their flu shot.
He adds that this looks like it will be a typical flu season.
Also, Dr. Moore says that with fall sports in full swing right now, his office is seeing a lot of children coming in with concussions and other injuries.
He advises parents to watch for signs like loss of consciousness, or erratic behavior after a head injury.
