Good Morning America was pushing Flu Shots this morning because several southern states have plenty of flu going around. Dr. Besser said that this year's shot contains the correct strain for what is going around.

My son got his annual check up while home and our Doc gave him the flu shot so by the time all the students are back in 2 weeks he will have immunity. I believe that the holidays spreads the flu with people going home getting sick and bringing back to where they live...easy way to spread the flu.

Anyone out there hearing about the seasonal Flu?

I just posted in the news section a link to a story here in Oklahoma, our 3rd, death due to flu this season. I didn't hear or see anything about the first two.
