While Henry admits that no flu vaccine is 100 percent effective, combined with other precautions it is still considered the most effective means of preventing influenza-related deaths.

The flu can spread very quickly and easily, but surprisingly vaccination rates on college campuses are "strikingly low" - as low as 8 percent and only as high as 39 percent, according to a 2016 report from the National Foundation of Infectious Diseases.

More than 48 million people got the flu last season, and almost 80,000 people died from the flu.

Yet less than two-thirds of seniors nationwide are planning to get vaccinated, according to Clover Health's Flu Shot Monitor, and the results in Nashville are especially striking.

Pharmacist Megan King, right, administers a flu shot to Mike Lambert inside the Walgreens at 9077 S. Pennsylvania Ave.in Oklahoma City Tuesday. After the fact, the severity of the flu season is measured in hospital visits, hospitalizations and deaths from flu and flu-related illnesses.

Of course, it's reasonable to ask: if you get vaccinated, why is it that you can sometimes still get the flu?

When asked if it was a five-horse race for the title, Guardiola replied: "I don't have any doubt about that". We have to adapt quickly and try to figure out the pitch will not be in ideal conditions and adapt.

"You can not get the flu from the influenza vaccination", said Henry. Considering the seriousness of the illness, however, you need all the protection you can get. The CDC notes, for example, that "among adults hospitalized with flu, vaccinated patients were to be admitted to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) than those who had not been vaccinated". The scientists making the vaccines use either inactivated (killed) viruses or a small amount of the full virus, which ensures your body can build up immunity while not making you sick.

“If you get your flu vaccine on Monday and on Wednesday you start sneezing, you did not start to develop the flu from the vaccine.

While the vaccine has been shown to be one of the most important preventive measures against the flu, you can do other things, too. The clinic is an all-inclusive experience, so patients can receive a variety of services, including other vaccinations and testing for sexually-transmitted diseases, while there for a flu vaccination.

The flu vaccine is made each year to protect against certain viruses. If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth or nose with your sleeve, not your hands. There are precautionary steps one can take to help prevent the flu. Pharmacists at her store have already administered 1,000 influenza vaccines since they became available on October 1. Elderly people, babies, and people with certain health conditions are more prone to catching the flu.

Several pharmacy employees around the metro said their clients reported it was hard to get into a doctor's office to get the vaccine or that some already said their physician ran out of doses.

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