  They had on the news the other day..that this years batch of the flu shots..is only 60% effective.  Now that there is so many getting sick..there's a run on trying to get a shot.. and some places are running out..

Oh wow I can post now.

The media announce every case of flu by the hour and they do it every year.  Apparently less people have been taking the flu shot this year than others so that could account for some of it.

The best way to avoid it is to stay away from crowds and wash your hands often.

I guess your post didn't take Chris.  There is no text in your message.

I hear the Boston area is getting hit hard with the flu and there have been several deaths from it there.
