Is it a Chill in the Air or is it the Flu?

The influenza virus has taken a big early leap into Georgia this season.  According to the CDC, over 20% of patient samples tested in Georgia have been positive for the influenza virus.  This is double the positive testing rate in the rest of the country.

The good news is the CDC is recommending all people over the age of 6 months receive an influenza vaccine this year.  Supplies are ample so finding the vaccine should be as easy as going to the store.  Be sure to check your local pharmacies for the vaccine.

Stay healthy and enjoy the holiday season.
