A flu shot should be on your list of New Year's resolutions, according to the Oregon Health Authority. Flu season typically peaks at this time of year, and the H1N1 virus is still floating around.  There is a new vaccine and recommendations for those who should get the new vaccine.  Carlos Quintanilla with the State Immunization Program says even those who are squeamish about getting the shot should consider the statistics. "In the 2009-2010 season, which was the H1N1 season, in Oregon from September through April, there were 1,314 patients hospitalized with laboratory confirmed influenza.  And there were 67 deaths; 63 adults and four children." Nationwide, almost 42,000 people were hospitalized and more than 2100 deaths were attributed to the H1N1 virus last season.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends annual flu shots for everyone over six months of age.
