Don't Forget Flu Season

With all the attention on COVID-19, don't overlook getting a flu shot. Flu season usually starts around October and can run until the following May. It peaks in December and January. Fact: 35.5 million people got sick with influenza in 2019 and 34,200 died. 188 were children. You can discover locations and organizations that offer free flu shots by visiting www.health.com and searching "free flu shot."
