This may be the worst flu season in the Bay Area in a decade according to this SFGate article and it’s pretty awful elsewhere as well. I’ve been noticing quite a few acquaintances getting sick and thoughts about flu are never far from my mind. Besides getting the flu shot, which apparently isn’t all that effective this season, I’ve been using hand sanitizer and washing my hands more than usual. I still worry though. Are you worried about getting the flu?
From the article:
In the Bay Area, urgent care centers, hospitals and doctors’ offices have seen a deluge of people with flu symptoms, including fever, body aches, fatigue, congestion and cough. Meanwhile, a few hospitals and pharmacies have reported running low on supplies of vaccine and antiviral medications, though the state said there are no shortages of any flu-related drugs.
