The flu virus can also live on surfaces for several hours which can cause you to get sick by touching your nose or eyes after touching a contaminated surface.

In addition to the vaccine, covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze is another technique for warding off the flu.

"We do know from the Southern Hemisphere, which is not always a flawless correlation, that it was a relatively quiet year for the Southern Hemisphere, and they were in an H1N1 year, which is included in this (year's) vaccine, so it could be a good match".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone six months and older receive a flu shot.

Flu season runs from October until May, peaking in January and February.

Experts agree that the 2017-2018 vaccine was not a "good match" - but that doesn't mean that the vaccine was completely ineffective!

Bolden said some people with underlying medical conditions are not advised to take the nasal spray vaccine and should check with their physician first.

For more information about when and how your child will be vaccinated against flu, talk to your GP or practice nurse. These children are in the clinical high-risk group for flu and so are eligible to have the injectable flu vaccine instead - advice should be sought from the healthcare professional offering vaccination.

Within the population, a vaccine's effectiveness varies widely because it is affected by the general health and age of the recipient.

If you think you may have the flu, stay at home and rest until you feel better.

But exactly how strong the shot should be, and whether additional injections would boost immunity, requires more study.

An increase in research funding on adjuvants, more effective dosing regimens (especially for seniors), and better production methods are achievable changes that would better prepare us to face flu outbreaks.

Coun Tracey Dixon, lead member for independence and wellbeing, said: "Flu on top of existing health conditions increases the chance of serious health complications". Vaccines can and should continue to be given as requested throughout the influenza season, the CDC said. In the meantime, get a flu shot every year.
