Flu Bug Widespread

December 31, 2010

Alabama is among three states with high flu activity , while the flu was at a moderate level in Florida, according  to a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The flu was reported to be widespread in Alabama, while it was more regional in nature in Florida. Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia and New York also had widespread flu activity last week.

According to the report, there might be a little good news for those that have had their flu shot — the current flu strains seem to be well-matched to this season’s flue vaccine.

    We get our shots every year as soon as they become available.

    @ CreamPuff…unfortunately for you, it takes the flu vaccine 2 weeks to start working.

    I got a shot and still got it one week later. You just can’t escape it sometimes

    I am glad I finally “caved” and got my shot…two weeks ago!
