Unless you live in a bubble, chances are you will be exposed to the cold and flu virus. While these contagious viruses can be found year-round in the United States, they are most common during the fall and winter. Cold and flu activity often begins to increase in October.1 You can monitor activity in your area with the Theraflu® Cold and Flu Tracker.
When is the peak of flu season?
Of course, every season plays out differently but, typically, the peak of cold and flu season is between December and February. In fact, according to the CDC, during a 34-year period dating back to 1982, February was the peak month of flu activity during 14 seasons.1
