All I have been hearing about lately is how bad the flu season is turning out to be this year! It's extremely widespread across the nation and is very serious. I typically get the vaccine and didn't this year, so I am starting to get nervous! Luckily both my girls and my husband got vaccinated.

Do you know anyone who has gotten the flu this year? Did you get vaccinated? If not, do you plan to get vaccinated now?

I am allergic to the vaccine or I definitely would get it. My daughter is a nurse and got the flu shot. She has patients with the flu, but she has stayed healthy. I just try to stay away from crowds and sick people. I wash my hands a lot and use hand sanitizer when I am out somewhere. If more people would get vaccinated it wouls slow down the spread but I know some people don't think it is healthy.
