According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the 2017-2018 flu season was a “high-severity” record-breaking season in the number of hospitalizations and killed in 165 children. In flu seasons of the last decade as many as 56,000 people died from the flu in the US in one year, and during the 1918 flu pandemic it was estimated that 50 million people died worldwide.
Come get your update about the flu, how it spreads, how it replicates and causes epidemics and pandemics, and how the CDC recommends you protect yourself. It takes two weeks for the vaccine to have a chance to protect you, so get your flu shot early when it is available in the fall. If you do get sick with the flu, stay home for 24 hours after your fever is gone to help avoid spreading it to others, and no matter if you are sick or healthy, wash your hands frequently. Help fight the flu!!
