Get your flu shot yet?
This season is a doozie. It's almost enough to inspire a quarantine mentality. Are you or your neighbors staying away from public places? Socializing less? Keeping your kids from playgroups — or school — either because they're sick or because other kids are?
Experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are saying that this year's flu shot formulation is a good match for the virus going around, and that right now is a great time to get the vaccination, because we're just about to hit our peak of infections.
In Pennsylvania, more than 11,000 lab-positive cases have been reported by the health department — with more than 7,000 flu coming in the last two weeks of December).
The Delaware Division of Public Health has confirmed a total of 441 cases — including a jump of 132 cases in the last week of December.
If you haven't gotten jabbed yet, are you thinking about going now? Let us know.
