Flu season can begin as early as October this year. I for one have been sneezing all week with a runny nose. And I hate sneezing....ahhchoo!

Flu shots are available at your primary care physician's office & are now available at most pharmacies in your local drug store throughout the capital region for minimal cost.

I personally have never taken a flu shot. I like to build up my own antibodies for fighting off the flu. But many people prefer the flu shot. Its hard to predict which strain of the flu will be in the 2013-2014 season as it mutates & so the flu shot may be ineffective. Some people get even sicker with the flu shot getting more than just a few symptoms but the full on flu.

Whatever you decide, its that time of year when the weather changes & we all get to feelin under the weather.
