It’s October, and that means it’s time to get your annual flu shot.
Getting that flu shot helps protect you two ways: First, by making it less likely that you’ll personally get the flu. Second, by creating a firebreak between someone who does have influenza and someone who hasn’t gotten the immunization for some reason.
Remember to always wash your hands (the simplest and easiest of the public-health measures you can take).
Now’s the time to inventory and restock (as necessary) your Flu Pre-Pack.
