This upcoming flu season is shaping up to be a bad one, that according to experts on the subject.

After studying the flu season in the Southern Hemisphere, doctors here in the Northern Hemisphere say this could be a bad one.

According to the National Institutes of Health, this year's vaccine appears to be only 10% effective.

Of particular concern is a powerful flu strain called H3N2 that recently hit individuals in Australia.

So what can you do?

Doctors say get a flu shot anyway because 10% effectiveness is better than nothing.
