The Flu and You
This has been a bad year for the flu. Compared to last year hospitalizations due to the influenza virus are up 169%. For kids in school and especially college students living in dorms or even larger families living all in the same house, transferring germs between each other becomes very easy and quickly spreads the virus. Before you know it everyone is infected.
The infographic below looks at how many people get the flu and how it affects us from year to year. Getting the flu shot can decrease your chance of getting the flu by 60%. I’m all for that.
