According to the State Health Department, vaccinations should continue throughout flu season, as long as flu viruses are circulating.

Flu vaccine can vary in how well it works, but remains the best way to prevent illness and influenza complications, including those that can lead to hospitalization. 

Even when flu vaccine does not prevent illness, it still lessens the severity and shortens the duration of the flu.
