Maybe you heard Lisa & Kevin talk about his annual “Family Flu Shot Day.”
Well, it’s actually the perfect time for a little poke, or reminder!
Summer may have just concluded, but the Centers for Disease Control already has our country on high alert, for a potentially nasty flu season.
The CDC says that more than 700,000 people were hospitalized with the flu, last season – with epidemic levels of influenza or pneumonia for 16 consecutive weeks.
Need more proof of how bad it was? 180 children died from the most recent bout of flu.
And while the vaccine isn’t perfect, it does offer the best protection you can get when it comes to preventing the potentially deadly virus.
