FLU: One Bad Bug!

Health officials locally, statewide and nationally are now urging residents to get flu shots. Much of that has to do with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with concerns about available bed space dwindling if there are simultaneous spikes in flu and COVID-19 cases. Part of that also has to do with the similarity in symptoms, including fever, cough, fatigue, sore throat, headache, body aches, shortness of breath and runny or stuffy nose. If you get sick, stay home. To reduce the potential spread of flu, wash your hands frequently and use the so-called “vampire cough” of coughing into your elbow.
