While some may be skeptical about the vaccine--thinking it won't work, or make you sick--Gary Fancher, a pharmacist at Collier's Drug Store, said neither is true. He also adds getting the flu shot not only protects you, but also the people around you.
"The more people vaccinated, the less chance of others getting the flu," Fancher said. "but if you haven't got the flu shot, there's a strong chance that you're going to get it at some point in time." The vaccination comes in a nasal spray for those who don't like needles. Experts say it takes about two weeks to take effect.
