Not too early for a flu shot

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Asking people to get a flu shot seems like something more for the winter than late October. But tis the season, already ... or so it seems from the numbers of people reportedly calling in sick from work and school this week.

While peak flu season is often February or March, it seems the flu or a flu-like illness has already struck many people in the area.

The flu shot is a relatively pain-free and inexpensive way to protect yourself and your loved ones from dealing with the suffering of the flu, as well as ensuring no one misses work or school.

If you haven’t already had a flu shot, consider if you’re eligible for a shot then make the arrangements to be vaccinated. A little effort could save you from a lot of trouble down the road.
