The flu season is here
The CDC estimates last year, about 79,000 people died & 960,000 people were hospitalized from flu-related complications. So, what can you do? According to the CDC, when you’re vaccinated against flu, you protect yourself and lower the chances of infecting others, including people at high risk of developing potentially serious flu complications. In addition to getting the flu shot, people 65 years and older should take the same everyday preventive actions CDC recommends of everyone, including covering coughs, washing hands often, and avoiding people who are sick.

I've always known that seasonal cases of flu happen in the winter. My 65-year-old father may be at risk of getting a cold, and I need to prevent that from happening. Thanks for saying that we should protect ourselves from this, so I'll probably look for a detection service to see if anyone is already a carrier in our home.
