If you haven't gotten a flu shot yet, you probably should. There are some pretty scary numbers from last year's flu season. Last year, 49 million people got the flu, 960,000 people were hospitalized, and 79,000 people died from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control says there is an easy way to avoid either getting the flu or reducing the severity of it if you do get sick - get a flu shot.

The CDC says seniors, pregnant women, and adults with underlying medical conditions, should get the flu shot. They also say that children younger than 5 years of age are part of the high risk group when it comes to the flu, and everyone age six months and older be vaccinated annually against the flu.

You can get a free flu shot if you do not have medical insurance or are on Medicaid.
