Flu shot: After 80,000 deaths last year, doctors urge people to vaccinated

Flu shots might sting. They might leave you achy. They might not be fail safe. But, experts say, get one anyway.

New Jersey health care providers are touting flu shots as the best way to prevent the outbreak of an illness that last year resulted in a record 900,000 hospitalizations and 80,000 deaths nationwide.



"We’re still trying to wrap our head around that number," Dr. Roger Thompson, a physician with Integrated Medical Alliance in Middletown, said. "Just think of that number."

It comes on the heels of a devastating year in which New Jersey alone reported nearly 26,000 cases of the flu, including the deaths of five children.

Len Iamundo, 62, of Middletown, is taking no chances. He didn't used to get the flu shot. But since he had open heart surgery eight years ago, he and his wife, Denise, heed their doctors' advice.
