Over this weekend, in the national news, you're seeing stories of what they're calling an Early Flu Season for the 2012-13 year. A quick search gets stories from NBC News, Huffington Post, Fox News, and ABC News. I had the flu 5 years ago, and I wrote about it in the post "Influenza Case Study: Me."
It is not too late to get your flu shot, which experts are saying is a good match to the current flu virus strain that is out there. Check out this list of people who should get the flu vaccine from the CDC. In the video above, you'll see a TV interview I did last month. Back at that time, there was influenza cases in the southern part of the US, but it's now the case that the virus is spreading nationwide. So, if you haven't already, get your flu shot!
