Albany- Starting next week, many people will start standing in line for their flu shots.

The influenza vaccine usually arrives the first week of October. It's important for the flu vaccine to go to babies and toddlers and people over the age of 50.

Doctors say this year, there's enough for everybody to get vaccinated.

"Everything from the CDC to the drug suppliers have said this year there is going to be an adequate supply of the flu vaccine for the first time in about three years," said Harry Dorsey, a doctor at Albany Internal Medicine.

The flu vaccine is good for about four months and generally takes two weeks for the antibodies to begin working in the body.
