Flu season is upon us, and the best way to avoid the chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort of influenza is to get a flu shot. The vaccine, which greatly reduces your chance of catching the bug, is available at most drug stores.

According to poll of 1,000 adults by Rasmussen Reports, 53 percent plan to get a flu shot this year. Forty percent answered that they will not, and 7 percent haven’t decided whether they will receive the precautionary needle prick.
