Everywhere I turn these days I hear about the flu. Doesn't matter which one--it's all people are talking about. With good reason, it seems. Hundreds of kids are sick at local schools. Doctors' offices are packed. Emergency rooms look like something out of a Michael Crichton novel with all the gloves and masks.
News reports are saying it's not IF you get the flu, it's WHEN. Which makes me wonder about all these vaccines. Do they really work? Are they worth it? Or if you're strong and healthy, does it make more sense to just catch the darn flu and get it over with?
I'm not sure. I'm just thanking my lucky stars that no one in the house is sick, and I hope it stays that way! How about where you live? Is the flu all the talk there too?
