Have you gotten your Flu Shot? Well, NOW is the perfect time! (Actually October was, but that’s neither here nor there.:) The CDC says EVERYONE over the age of six months should get a flu shot. WHY? You might ask…great question!
Here’s a few AWESOME facts:
*The Flu virus is extremely contagious and when we live in close proximity to one another can spread very quickly. Getting the shot not only keps you healthy but those around you as well.
*Wash your hands well and often!
*Even healthy people can get very sick and potentially hospitalized from the flu.
*Let’s keep the flu away from our older population by getting our shot because unfortunately “between 80% and 90% of flu related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older” (CDC website, http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm)
