It’s that time of year for the sniffles, absences from work, and rumors of “the flu”.
In fact, rumors of the flu are true. According to the C.D.C.’s Flu View index, the 2017-2018 flu season will rival that of 2014-2015 when the H3N2 strain of the virus was particularly nasty. To date, reports of the flu are up 500% across the country.
Short of hiding in a sterilized bubble, what is a person to do?
- Get a Flu Shot
- Avoid Those Who Are Sick
- Go See Your Doctor
