Even if you have had your flu shot this year, you need to remain vigilant. This year's flu vaccine is not matched for two of the three strains knocking people down this flu season. Public health officials are also stating that the season has not yet peaked. Yikes!
Your best line of defense is to wash your hands often, especially after being in a public place or if you are taking care of someone with the flu. These strains seems like real doozies and are laying people up with fever around 102ºF for several days. If you do get sick remember that you don't need to starve your fever.
