With flu season nearly upon us, the big question this year --like every year-- is: Are you going to get your flu shot this year?

It was about a month ago that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that people get their flu shots this year, sooner rather than later. Part of the line of thinking on that is that approximately "80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter - the disease's highest death toll in at least four decades" - that's from WILX. If a person receives the flu shot, it may help to lower the number of deaths related to the flu.

Will you be among those getting the flu shot this season? Let us know in the poll below.
