The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a warning that this year’s flu season could be deadly for some people. The flu vaccine currently available may not effectively cover people from a new strain of the flu that has emerged in recent months. We will learn more about the risks of the flu and how you can protect yourself. This week is also National Influenza Vaccination Week (December 7 to 13). Do you get a flu shot every year? Have you already gotten the flu this season? Join our conversation about prevention, treatment and avoiding the spread of seasonal illnesses like the flu and colds.
