Several states in the Southern US are showing significant amounts of influenza. This is considered a very early point in the season for the flu and has not been seen for almost 10 years.
The flu seen in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas is primarily those flu strains that are part of this year’s immunization protocol. This means that our flu shot this season will have a high degree of effectiveness.
Great news for all of use who have gotten our flu shot, and for those who many still want to get their shot sometime soon.
