How long does it take for ACT scores to be reported to colleges?

On the ACT site it says it can take 5-8 weeks for colleges to receive your score. I am planning to take ACT on December 13. But most of the colleges I am applying to have score reporting deadlines at early January. All the colleges say they will accept the December scores, but if it takes that long for colleges to receive the ACT scores, is it okay to send December scores right after I take the test?
