"From what I've read they are expecting a year potentially not as severe as last year", Henry said.

While the vaccine has been shown to be one of the most important preventive measures against the flu, you can do other things, too. "It'll be more of an average year".

This year's flu shot formulation-chosen by the World Health Organization's best scientific guess at which viruses will flourish based on what is circulating across the globe-includes strains of H1N1, H3N2 and two strains of influenza B. But there's no way of knowing in advance whether the correct strains were chosen, especially considering the flu virus is always evolving, explained Saxinger.

Almost 12 million children came down with the flu, and 48,000 were hospitalized, CDC statistics show.

Weldon said that because the vaccine is developed from the previous year's statistics, its effectiveness can vary. It is our duty to our friends, family, and neighbors to dispel these fables and encourage everyone in middle Tennessee to get vaccinated before the virus hits.

"That's the challenging part", said Weldon.

It is true that the flu vaccine can not prevent flu that is caused by a virus not covered by the vaccine, or illnesses that are similar to flu.

A 40-year-old-man died from influenza B complications the week of October 21 in Pierce County, Wash., according to a report from the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

"You know, it's in the building", Conneely said. Its that simple. No need to make a decision.

According to a news release from Jefferson County Public Health, the best way to protect yourself - and others - from influenza is to get vaccinated.

Flu season has arrived in Jefferson County, and public health officials recommend residents get a flu shot sooner rather than later.

"The more people that get the flu vaccine, the less likely you're going to get the disease and becoming contagious and spread it to someone else", Lo said.

At Cuyuna, Weldon said they put an emphasis on education in their clinics for everyone from providers to patients. It's really about utilizing all the things you now have to reduce the number of influenza illnesses.

While vaccines have their flaws, they are still our most effective weapon against influenza.

The safety of the flu vaccine has been a common concern providers hear.

Getting a flu shot will help prevent you from getting the flu and keeping others around you healthy. "That's been proven over and over again".

One of these misconceptions is that the vaccine doesn't work.

Weldon said people can experience very mild, flu-like symptoms for a short period of time immediately following the vaccine.

King said she learned in pharmacy school how to administer vaccines. "That can be devastating and deadly to those individuals". But Pergam stressed that the most prolonged exposure people with cancer typically have to microbes is with their family members or colleagues at work. "It can be a death sentence".
