Healthy Living: Doctors say it’s time for the flu shot
Last year's flu season was the worst in years, taking the lives of an estimated 80,000 people according to the Centers for Disease Control. This year, doctors are once again encouraging anyone older that 6-years-old to get vaccinated, saying the flu shot is the best defense against getting sick. Severe reactions to the vaccine are rare and experts say people who are allergic to eggs and have chronic illnesses should talk to their doctor before getting the vaccine.
