A just-released Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report estimate from the 2016-2017 influenza season showed mostly stagnant vaccination rates among all age groups, with small increases in those 50 and older. The most common side effects from the influenza shot are soreness, redness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given.

"The flu is technically from October 1st through, usually, May but it depends on the season", said Dr. Christy Mulkerin with the San Luis Obispo County Health Department.

"Historically they've had an intranasal flu vaccination, but studies have shown that it's not almost as effective as the intramuscular injections", said Dr. Minior.

And researchers from Stinchfield's hospital looking back three years found that kids who got severely ill from the flu were 57 percent less likely to have gotten flu shots compared to kids who got less sick, she said.

"Every flu season is different, and we don't know ahead of time when we're going to start to see flu circulation", Melissa Stockwell, a pediatrics specialist at Columbia University's public health school, told Newsweek.

And though you can ignore an unwanted houseguest, you can't ignore the flu: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says that deaths attributed to the illness have ranged from 12,000 to 56,000 annually since 2010.
