Flu Activity Up This Season

If you haven't gotten a flu shot yet, experts say you might want to get that done in a hurry to protect yourself this year.

WITN checked stats from the State Health Department, and the number of reported flu cases is slowly ticking upwards, and has been since mid-December.

We are nearing where flu season peaked last year, according the state stats, which is towards the end of January into February.

    #1: There are mutated strains of influenza that the flu shot will not work. In the case of a pandemic, if you read your history books there have been some in the past that had to run the course with alot of casulaty/death. My sister has to take the flu shot every yr., seems she gets the flu @ least twice. I have a couple of friends that take it /////// don't get sick. Had another friend / older lady / took it / paralyzed her ------ after 4 yrs. of agony---- she died. Call shot---------

      Bet you'll be the first in line for a flu shot if we have a pandemic.

        Some of us aren't panic-mongers. If there's a pandemic, a flu shot will be as pointless as it is now at the peak of the season anyway. If people would use their common sense and not gurgle, snot, and slobber in public when they're sick we wouldn't have these problems in the first place. If you're contagious STAY HOME! It's that simple.
