Posted: Updated:

If you've been putting off getting your flu shot, you may want to get on it.

Flu season is just around the corner and health officials are urging people to get vaccinated now. USA Today reports an assistant secretary with the Health and Human Services Department is warning people the illness can be unpredictable.

He says people should not expect this flu season to be mild just because that was the case last year.  He says even mild seasons can end in death and noted 34 children died from the flu last year.
