Have you ever had the flu? Have your children ever had the flu? If so, you know first hand how miserable you or your child felt while sick. But, did you know that since 2010, the Centers for Disease Control estimated 12,000-79,000 individuals die each year from flu-related causes? Do you know what is the number one means of protecting yourself from the flu? If you guessed a flu shot (vaccination) you are correct. Common hygiene measures such as washing your hands and covering your cough and sneeze can protect yourself and others from spreading germs as well.
