It is best to get vaccinated before the influenza virus starts circulating in your community.

With flu season looming, why hasn't everyone gotten vaccinated? Shahab said the number of people getting it has been increasing in recent years. "We will have complete supplies by the end of November and the main epidemic of flu every year tends to come after this". In contrast, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 34 million Americans, or about 11 percent of Americans, got the flu during the 2014-2015 flu season. Influenza is often quite serious for seniors.

The health unit website states there were 18,000 deaths worldwide due to the H1N1 flu virus in 2009. "You have to have two weeks after you get the shot for it to completely work and be effective".

The vaccine is not fail-proof, but it does decrease the chances of getting the flu and increase recovery times for those who do get the flu.

From October to March influenza is the most prevalent, which is why physicians like Dr. Brandi Manning urges her patients to get their vaccines.

"The flu shot is incredibly important because it reduces your risk of contracting the flu", Michelle Lin, an emergency room doctor, and professor of emergency medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, told Fox News on Thursday.

This is what the flu virus wants - it wants to spread, grow and multiply and we give it the ideal environment if we don't vaccinate those considered to be most at risk.

No vaccine is flawless, and Cherry said that even if you are protected just 50 percent, you are shielding yourself from more severe disease. It is not a coincidence that so many people get sick right around midterms and finals.

The out of pocket cost for a flu vaccine is $30. Ask your health care provider what preventative care is necessary for you based on age, gender, family history, and other health risk factors.

Which is not to say you won't get any symptoms after a flu shot. Of positive samples at public health labs, 86.4% were influenza A and 13.6% were influenza B. Of the few influenza A samples that were subtyped, 22.2% were H3N2 and 75% were 2009 H1N1.
