"So if you get it too soon and we get a late flu season, the immunity might have worn off before flu season is over".

However, while many are lining up to get the influenza vaccine, others remain skeptical of the shot's effects.

"The biggest pain is if you get the flu and you are knocked out in bed for three days because you hurt so bad", Dr. Crawford says of the alternative to flu shots.

Officials said in Clinton County two flu cases have now been reported as of the beginning of November.

Influenza remains a global public health threat that cycles around the globe each year, based on seasons and strains.

Gray said that receiving a flu shot at the beginning of the season not only protects the person receiving the shot, but also protect others from the flu.

For the current season, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are projecting viruses H1N1, H3N2, B/Victoria lineage and a second potential lineage of B viruses.

"There are people who should not be exposed to the live virus ... the elderly, the very young, pregnant women are not allowed to get the live virus".

The Clinton County Health Department recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccination each year. Even if a person who has received the shot becomes ill, the vaccine can still protect many people and prevent flu-related complications.

Flu shots started being administered at clinics, doctor's offices, pharmacies, and workplaces last month. "At least one earlier study has shown that patients who are exposed to a healthcare worker who is sick are five times more likely to get a healthcare-associated infection", said lead researcher Sophia Chiu, MD, of the CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

"No I want to never never get sick like that", she said.

She adds: "Basically it's just a more concentrated version of the regular flu shot". "Immune systems are less responsive as people age". She said this year was a little different- she had to get it early.
