"consumer reports" explains who is affected and who is not and when it's best for people actually to get vaccinated. doctors will tell you getting a vaccine is hands down the best offense against the flu and
depending on your age and help you may need to change the kind of vaccine you get. this year the nasal vaccine flu mist is not recommended by the centers for disease control and prevention. >> in the last three years the flu mist offered little, if any protection against the flu in children between the ages of two and 17. >> by comparison when children got the shot the vaccine was 63% effective at preventing the flu. adults age 18 to 46 have the option of getting the vaccine with a smaller needle that only pierces the skin which should be less painful than the traditional shot injected into the muscle, and there are new formulations for people 65 and over to consider whose immune system research shows may not be as responsive as young people's. flu zone, high dose, is four times stronger than the normal vaccine and another type, fluad boosts older people immune response and check with your doctor on those. >> when it comes to timing the
shot healthy people under the age of 60 or so can benefit from longer protection by getting the vaccine as soon as it becomes available. >> however, the protective effectist vaccine may wear off faster and getting the shoot bit later and early fall may protect them better during the winter when the flu season tends to peak. in any case it takes about two weeks to build up immunity. >> okay. the most important thing, of course, is to get the flu shot no matter the timing. the standard vaccine is still free under most insurance plans and the medicare. no co-pay, no deductible. real, check with your insurance company first. there's some odd policy out there, and i don't want you to get caught. they are very cheap. go to local chained drug stores. >> worth the protection, absolutely. >> now the accuweather forecast with spencer christian. >> okay. here's a look at the calm before two approaching storms. live doppler 7 shows us bright skies though we have thin high clouds over the bay area. a view of our western sky. lots of blue showing with the clouds under the blue sky.
