KUSA - Flu season is in full swing and 9Health Fairs are still taking place across the state to help Coloradans stay healthy.

9NEWS Medical Expert Dr. John Torres is reminding everyone to get a flu shot, and a TDAP shot. Both will be offered at the 9Health Fair Sunday, October 27 at Joy Lutheran Church in Parker from 7 a.m. until noon.

"We have no idea what the flu season is going to be like. We have no idea when it is going to hit. We have no idea how hard it is going to hit," Dr. John said. "It could be two weeks from now, it could be two months from now."

Dr. John says it is important to not wait until the last minute to get a flu shot because it takes a few weeks for it to be effective.

He also stresses the importance of the TDAP shot to protect children against pertussis (whooping cough).
