Flu and You: Too late for flu shot?

As winter begins to thaw, you might think that you no longer have to worry about colds and flu.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that flu season peaks in January or February, and can last late into May. And the agency has issued a public service announcement to remind us that  it's not too late to vaccinate.

The level of flu during the week of between February 6 through 12 “remained elevated,” reported the CDC.

Five flu-related children’s deaths were reported that week.  During this flu season, which started in October, there have been 35 confirmed pediatric deaths.

As of last week, 20 states have high flu-like illness activities – most of them are Southern and Southeastern states such as South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.  (See map above for more details about where flu activities are most intense.)

    Different varieties of tea leaves can vary greatly in their stimulating or relaxing qualities, partly due to different caffeine content. You’re also likely to enhance your experience of drinking green tea if you stick to certified organic green tea brands.
