We hear it every year around this time - It's time to get your flu shot.

Flu Season usually takes place from October through March, but the vaccine takes two weeks to kick so clinics all around the Quad City area are starting soon.

The first clinic is being held Tuesday, September 17th, 2013 at the Rock Island County Health Department, 2112 25th Avenue in Rock Island, from 8am to 5pm with a children's clinic from 8am to 12pm.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone six months of age and older gets vaccinated.
