Taiwan normally starts its annual free vaccination program on October 1 in preparation for the flu season, which usually begins in November and peaks around February the following year before slowing down in March. Parents can opt for the nasal mist this year, and even if the flu vaccine is not a flawless match for the strain, health officials say it decreases symptoms and severity. Around 80% of the children who died had not received the vaccine.

They say getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent from getting sick, and passing it along to others. So it's possible that you could contract flu or a variation of the virus during in this time. She also said that the flu shot is free for anyone six months or older.

The Department of Health and Community Services said the number of clinics will increase this year to help improve public access to the vaccine.

One of the most common myths is, "I'm not going to get vaccinated because I never get the flu".

The vaccine protects against four strains of the influenza virus, including H1N1 and H3N2.

Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with certain medical conditions are most at risk for suffering flu-related complications - some of which can lead to hospitalization or death, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says. You really feel like you've been run over by a bus.
