Remember – flu and what we call stomach flu are not the same thing. I know we grew up calling stomach upsets the flu, but actual flu (or influenza) is really an upper respiratory infection.
I don’t want to jinx it, but right now actual flu cases are fairly minimal throughout most of the U.S. – how do I know you say??? Check out the CDC Flu tracker!
Click that link and you’ll be amazed at all the information you can find on the flu. Maybe the incidence is down because the flu shot is working well so far this season? Who knows – just knock on wood that you don’t catch it!
