The flu season starts in October and runs through May.

"A live vaccine is going to have actual particles of the virus, but it has been reduced down to where it will not actually cause the flu", said Dr. Livingston.

MoHP-Health Centres/Clinics/Public Health assistant undersecretary Dr Hussain Abdulrahman Al Rand issued the reminder on Wednesday at the launch of the annual "Get the Vaccine, Not the Flu" national awareness campaign.

Regular-dose flu shots will be available, as well as high dose for those age 65 and older. But this isn't because the vaccinations don't work for most people. The flu shot can keep people from getting sick with the flu and it is shown to reduce the severity of illness in those who get vaccinated but still get sick.

Anyone seeking a vaccine should bring their insurance cards with them to the flu clinic.

The flu is unpredictable, and Baber said she's not sure what the upcoming season holds. Certain people are more likely to have serious health problems if they get the flu.

"[The flu vaccine] It's about 70 percent effective in keeping people out of the hospital, and about 80 percent effective in keeping people from dying", according to Dillaha.

She said vaccine does not prevent one from falling ill with flu but will have the person get protected from all the harmful effects of the "acute viral infection that spreads easily from person to person, and can affect anybody in any age group".

As of now, manufacturers are providing between 163 and 168 million doses of injectable vaccine for the USA market for this upcoming flu season.

Five companies make flu vaccine for the USA market.

Kaiser Permanente will open all seasonal flu clinics throughout Southern California on Saturday, Sept. 22, and urges all members to get their no-cost vaccinations early.

To help, all CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations have the vaccine available seven days a week with no appointment needed.

"We are asking residents not to put off getting their flu vaccine". More than 80 percent of doses are created to protect against four flu strains.

One reason so many are flocking to get the shot is the knowledge of last year's flu season-which according to the CDC had flu levels that were the highest observed since 2009. "We need to protect the elderly and the very young".
