Feeling a little draggy--think, be smart

The flu is now at epidemic proportions.

Some companies have half or way more than half of their workforce out. Those who come to work may be contagious (two days before onset of real symptoms) but are soldiering on and coming to work anyway--and infecting people.

The shot is only 62% effective--but it can shorten the days of misery--so from both standpoints is worth it.

Some companies are also handing out face masks.

Just a month or two to go--be smart.

We went in the grocery story--no table with nurses--but we asked the pharmacist and after diddling around FOREVER, he gave us the shot.

If you do get it, stay home 24 hours after you start feeling better.
