Still wondering how many of these people had the flu shot? Please start adding this in your reports:)
Free vaccinations? How long til the Republicans cry socialism?
Public health emergency? The mayor hasn't even suggested voluntary quarantines. Not trying to be heartless, just pointing out an important part of stopping the spread of the illness.
Stay out of church and avoid people who work with or have large gaggles of small children.
Minino who? if you hack out a graf, guys, carry full names from it down to the second reference in the story, please.
Universal healthcare at its finest! this is what we have to look forward to! enjoy your win.
what does immigrants have to do with the flu? this happens every year. Flu outbreaks all the time. the problem is how come so many are dieing when they have universal healthcare in MA? that is the question and what we have to look forward to with our new national healthcare.
Surprised at the negative responses to the first comment. Very legitimate question - I have two personal friends who dutifully got the flu shot in November and were down for two weeks apiece (one in the hospital) with very scary versions of the flu. I understand the benefit of the shot, but it is statistically important to track its effectiveness if for no other reason than to improve future public health outcomes.
Interesting. I keep hearing how bad it is, but have not met anyone personally who has had it which is unusual. Might get bad now that the kids went back to school after Christmas break. Should be really fun when the colleges start back up.
WASH YOUR HANDS. I have never had a flu shot. I have had the flu 2 times in 36 years. Getting a flu shot isn't bad, but it may give some a false sense of security.
