FLU?!!

It's that time again, we aren't even through hurricane season yet but it's time for flu shots. Since living in the dorm at college I have gotten a flu shot each year and it seems to help me avoid getting that vicious flu that goes around each year. I've been told that it takes 2-4 weeks for the human body to recognize and start producing antibodies to these nasty little germies -- once you have the shot you're good for 10 months. (I've also been told that if you take two aspirin an hour before you get the shot it reduces the possible soreness in your arm!)

So, if you are considering having a flu shot, clear it with your doctor first. The place I found them available is Kroger. Check out their site at the upper right for locations and times.

Here's to your health! Cheers!

Ah, the flu. We are good friends. I'm just happy that flu season is over here in Australia! Stay well :)
