Flu season...

...along with all the fun that the Fall season brings, also comes the dreaded "Flu Season"...
Since I work in the healthcare industry, I'm always promoting the flu shot and constantly educating people about the dangers of influenza...
Flu season runs from September thru March, with its peak hitting in January or later.. Most doctors start vaccinating as early as September and go as late as December...
According to information by the CDC, the flu can cause mild to moderate symptoms in to otherwise healthy people, however it can lead to serious and sometimes fatal complications...
It is important that everyone is well informed about the dangers of the flu and furthermore about the importance of the flu vaccine...
In my experience, many people decline the flu shot based on past experiences or urban myths..and while I do recognize that the flu shot may not be for everyone, it is key that everyone at least considers taking precautions to prevent influenza during the peak season...
