Even if you feel healthy right now, you could be just days away from a crippling bout with the flu. The Center for Disease Control suggests that everyone over the age of 6 months old get vaccinated for the flu. Remember that once you get the flu, you can pass it on to loved ones and even to strangers you encounter. So, do your part to keep everyone around us healthy: get a flu vaccination today!
