Immunize El Paso is encouraging everyone to start getting their flu shots this fall.
Every year 36,000 people die from influenza-related illnesses that could be prevented with a simple flu shot or nasal spray vaccine.
Anyone from 6 month-old babies to adults can get the vaccine which could help you avoid getting sick this winter.
"Typically the vaccination period is now up until December and that's all in preparation for when the bug actually spreads in January and April the following year. So now is a great time to get protected against the flu," Dusty Warden from Immunize El Paso said.
Children and the elderly are typically more vulnerable to get the flu.
The vaccine will cost you $25.
