Get your flu shot!!!

This year has set a record for the number of influenza vaccines distributed throughout the U.S. at such an early phase of the flu season, with over 103 million doses in all 50 states. What does this mean? Well, it means that people are tired of getting the flu and more people are attempting to get vaccinated against it earlier in the flu season to prevent any torturesome infections. Experts predict that over 132 million doses will have been distributed throughout the U.S. by the end of the flu season. Remember, it's not too late to get vaccinated: "The time to get flu vaccine continues into December, January, and beyond," says the deputy director of the CDC (Immunization Services Division).
