Well it’s official. Summer is over and cooler weather is here to stay. As you work to dig your coat out from the closet and find your winter boots, here’s something else to consider: getting a flu shot. With over 143 million vaccines produced this year, the government is urging more people than ever to get vaccinated. There is an especially large push to reach the 50-64 demographic, which rarely gets flu shots in the same numbers as children and the 65 and over crowd. With over 200,000 Americans hospitalized with the flu each year in the US, there’s really no reason not to go in and get the shot.
