"So if you've been exposed to the flu and you start coming down with symptoms, then get to your health care professional and get a prescription".

Some say this years vaccine may be to blame for because of its ten percent effective rate. Some people claim to get slightly sick after getting the shot, other vaccine veterans say the shot hurts worse than the average immunisation ritual, and yet there are others who think getting vaccinated and taking store-bought medication are interchangeable.

Infants should receive two doses of the vaccine at least six months apart, the agency said, adding that children born previous year or earlier who have received one shot of the vaccine can receive a second shot before they enter elementary school.

While the flu vaccine is most often administered from September to mid-November, it is not too late for people who have not yet gotten vaccinated to do so.

This national map, created by the CDC, tracks the flu across America.

One of the most convenient options employers have in preventing the flu is on-site clinics.

Signs and symptoms of flu can include a fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.




And an important reminder: Stay home if you are sick. It's already been flu season there. Many health plans cover the cost of the vaccine with no copay.

The flu is made up of various strands of the virus and, another round of the flu is about to descend. Most flu vaccines protect against strains that are only respiratory in nature.

For those age 65 and older, a high-dose version of the flu vaccine is recommended and available.

In rare cases, serious allergic reactions may occur.

The vaccine only reduces the possibility of getting the flu; it does not rule out the chance of contracting it entirely. Individuals with weak immune systems and healthy individuals are equally likely to catch the flu virus.

- take flu antiviral drugs if prescribed by their doctor.
