The end of summer means the onset of cold and flu season.
Medical professionals say this is the time to get a flu shot or nasal mist or another form.
"They all work the same and they're just indicated for different groups of people and that way you have the flexibility," said Dr. Alexia Lishnevski of Akron General Medical Center.
Lishnevski says most people over the age of 6 months can get a flu shot, although it's not recommended for people with certain medical conditions.
We all know people who claim that "caught the flu" after getting sthot, but the doctor says that's a common fallacy.
"It is coincidence," said Lishnevski. "You cannot get the flu from the flu shot. It's an inactive, dead vaccine."
Lishnevski also says she's okay with people stopping by a pharmacy or grocery store, rather than a doctor's office, to get vaccinated.
Flu shots are recommended for most people over age six months.
