The flu season has hit with surprising force this year.
Some are calling it an epidemic while others think it is just a stronger flu season than normal. Nonetheless it seems to be everywhere across the country. Some areas are running out of flu vaccinations which isn’t helping matters. The government has set up a pretty slick website over at Flu.gov to guide you in getting through this year’s flu season.
Be sure to check with your insurance company to see if they cover flu shots. Even if they don’t most walk in clinics charge about $25. Compared to feeling ill for 7 days and having to miss work, $25 still seems like a bargain to me.
