Flu vaccines are available earlier than ever, according to ABC News.

The vaccine usually covers three strains, but if you want the new version that protects you against four strains, you'll have to act fast. Only about 30 million are being made.

However, you can get the most comprehensive vaccine by getting the nasal spray form that covers all four strains.

And there's something new for seniors: a super dose is available. It's four times more powerful and designed for people over 65.
