We encourage this for you - and for the people around you, too. The CDC states that "you should get a flu vaccine by the end of October". Last year, the vaccine was indeed a bit of a disappointment. Flu shots cost $20 at the Student Health Office on 2 Continental Drive, which is about a 15-minute walk from campus.

While most healthy people recover from the flu, it can be passed to others with weakened or underdeveloped immune systems. Seasonal flu vaccination is recommended for anyone six months and older.

Nationwide, more than 50 percent of Americans adults don't get this shot every year.

Short answer: The CDC says yes, please get that shot. Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night and practice good hygiene by frequently washing your hands. They may be skeptical about vaccines in general.

About 900,000 people had to be hospitalized last flu season and 183 children died from the flu.

Flu shots are seldom something to look forward the protection they provide is worth a little pain, officials with health organizations across the state agree.

The previous season, 4,242 flu cases were reported in Arizona. Do you care for an elderly relative or a chronically sick friend?

The flu jab will also be offered to all frontline care staff who are directly employed and those services commissioned by the County Council.

The health department says it's seeing flu cases a bit earlier than expected.

About 26 per cent of people in the province received the flu vaccination past year. This is unequivocally false. For the first time in two years, nasal spray vaccines, like the flu mist, is an option. A person can get the flu during this period.

There's also the issue of where you get your shot, said Dr. Richard Zimmerman, a professor of family medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. But those reactions don't mean the flu shot made you sick. What is influenza? According to the CDC, influenza is a "contagious respiratory illness caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs".

The doctor wonders if people would be more inclined to get the flu shot if it was a hypothetical "cancer vaccine" with the same effectiveness.
