The flu vaccine is available at doctors' offices, health clinics, and some pharmacies and other stores.

Ott says it is particularly important to receive the flu shot to protect those within society who cannot receive the flu shot as well as those who are immune compromised.

The Hanover and District Hospital is urging all of its employees who can to also receive the influenza vaccination.

CDC data shows that during last flu season, 37.1 percent of American adults got vaccinated against the flu.

Everyone over six months of age is recommended to get the flu vaccine.

Like millions of other Americans, JoJo O'Neal chose not to get the flu vaccine a year ago. The flu shot is also covered if you are a Medicare Part B recipient.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta says about 80% of the children who died were not vaccinated against the flu. The free flu vaccines are being offered to groups who are at particular risk of the virus.

"You may have a few days after you get your flu shot where you perhaps aren't feeling 100 percent", Han said.

"The flu vaccine is not ideal", Basta said.

The American Lung Association's "GetMyShot" campaign, which Han and O'Neal are both spokespersons for, has resources aimed at people ages 50 and older about the dangers of the flu and the importance of vaccination.

Dr. Frank Illuzzi, chief medical officer at CityMD, and a board-certified physician in emergency medicine, recommends patients speak with their medical providers about the different flu vaccine options to determine which one is the best fit for them. Additionally, people that are allergic to the flu shot should take extra precautions when getting their shot.
