Flu Shot News

Good news related to the flu shot in Maryland.  I learned yesterday that because of the Ebola scare, influenza vaccinations are up 30% so far this year.  Now it could be that the Ebola scare is reminding folks to get their shot, but I am also hearing from people who have opted out of getting the flu shot in previous years that they are getting it this year.  That's a good thing, but unfortunately it has taken the Ebola scare to get people motivated.  Isn't it enough that tens of thousands die every year from the flu?

I will be traveling for the next week and a half so I will be blogging intermittently.  Be well!
