We are fast approaching flu season…and a good time to get your flu shot.
Nebraska State Epidemiologist Dr. Tom Safranek urges getting a flu shot by the end of the month. Dr. Safranek says there is no way to predict how bad this fall and winter will be.
He says the flu shot is the best protection available against a virus that kills tens of thousands even in a not-so-bad year.
The past two years brought miserable flu seasons.
