Just like that, it's flu season!


 

We've now formally turned to autumn, and pow!  It's time once again to get your annual flu shot.

Here's a link to the flu.gov website so you can get more information on other ways than the vaccine itself for you to minimize your risk of catching the flu from others.

Research has shown now that those who get the shot every year build up greater immunity to more severe forms of the flu like swine flu (H1N1) or even bird flue (H5N1).

Better yet, you don't have to schedule an appointment in your doctor's office.  Most pharmacies now offer the vaccine in either shot or nasal spray form.

Off you go!
