The Florida Department of Health is urging residents to get their flu shot after a child who did not receive the vaccine died after contracting the virus, state health officials confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.

Here's a bit of good news from the survey: about 70 percent of the parents said that the flu vaccine is the best way to protect their child from the flu.

You can prevent spreading the flu by getting a flu shot, washing your hands and coughing and sneezing into your elbow - not your hands.

Interested in Flu Season?

Some people do get achy and exhausted after getting the vaccine but that's usually just the immune system mounting a response. If you have ever had the flu, you'll do just about anything to keep from having it again.

The government will launch its annual free flu vaccination program on Monday at hospitals and other medical facilities throughout Taiwan, starting with people in high-risk groups, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

"The flu isn't something you want to get or share with others", Courtney said, in the release.

Side effects of the vaccine usually include redness, swelling, and soreness where you were injected (if you go the shot route), but "a small percent of individuals, around one or two percent, can get a fever that can last for 24 or rarely 48 hours", Schaffner says.

Ultimately, she says, the figures stand up the overall benefits of the flu shot. "That's also not the flu".

In early September, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that parents get their children vaccinated against the flu "as soon as it is available" and ideally before the end of October.

The unidentified child was otherwise healthy before getting the flu, according to the Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Epidemiology. The child, the first to die in the state, had not received a flu vaccination. "By not vaccinating your child, you are putting your child's life in danger".
