There are new concerns about this year's flu vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say you should be vigilant with washing your hands, avoid touching your eyes and mouth, get plenty of sleep and eat healthy to help give your immune system a boost. "Recently published research suggests that mutations occurring in egg-prepared vaccines may have contributed to decreased vaccine effectiveness during the 2016-2017 influenza season in the United States and the 2017 flu season in Australia".

The Louisiana Department of Health says flu activity is picking up significantly across the state. "I'm confident it'll be as normal as 40 to 60 percent effective to protect against the flu", Navarrette said.

"You can get this flu shot pretty much everywhere right now". The most common side effects from the influenza vaccine are soreness, redness, or swelling at the site of the injection and, in some cases, a low-grade fever, headache or muscle-ache. "I really stay away from saying "we should be anxious about this" or 'we should be anxious about that, ' because the flu itself, and seasonal intensity, always has a degree of unpredictability about it", he explains to Bustle. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too. Flu season in Spokane County typically peaks in February.

"If you look historically and put things into perspective, there's variability in flu seasons". Among the most at risk for complications from the flu include seniors over 65 years old, children under age five, and pregnant women.
