USA health officials are bracing for a devastating flu season this winter that many people won't even be able to ward off with their annual flu shot. Bruton said flu season historically begins after the new year. And this year, Dr. Fauci and the co-authors of the perspective believe this flu season could be one of the rougher ones. And the United States has the same vaccine. This approach usually provides effective coverage from the flu for most vaccine recipients-well, 40 to 60% of the time, which is pretty good in terms as far as vaccine coverage goes.
And this year, experts say the flu virus might end up being more intense than it has been in the past and the flu vaccine might not be as strong as expected.

And most health plans are required to cover the vaccine as well as number of other vaccinations. Last year, the vaccines were only 34 percent effective. He adds that avoiding public places during an outbreak, staying home from school or work when you are ill, and covering your mouth if you sneeze is key to reducing the spread of the virus. You should also wash your hands, and be careful of items like door knobs and sell phones which collect bacteria.
Myth 1. The flu shot gives you the flu. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
