Flu Season

Flu season is coming to a close, and according to U.S. Department of Health, the peak months in the United States are in January and February, but can occur as early as October and as late as May.

How the Flu Spreads

It's believed that the flu can spread  from coughs, sneezes or simple conversations where droplets of water can be sprayed from the infected persons mouth or nose, to yours. It's also possible to contact the flu virus by touching a surface that has the flu virus on it, and then touching your eyes, mouth or nose.

One of the best defenses against the flu is the vaccine.
