ATLANTA (WTVM) – Flu season is quickly approaching and doctors are encouraging people to get the vaccination

This news comes even though they say last year's flu vaccine was not as effective as they had hoped.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the flu shot is normally about 60 percent effective. Last year it was only 13 percent effective, but doctors say the shot still could have helped you.
