We've had so much sunshine, some people have actually started to complain about the monotony of blue skies and warm temperatures. Well, all that monotony is expected to be flushed out of North Idaho this weekend, with showers and cooler temperatures heralding the October weather most of us have come to expect. And not far behind are the bugs. Flu bugs. October marks the opening of flu season in these parts, a literally sickening seasonal disorder that inflicts its nastiness on vulnerable denizens. Our message today is simple but important: Please, get a flu vaccination. For adults, they generally run about $30 at most local pharmacies - a small price to pay for a Get Out of Sickbed Free ticket from now through May/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.
DFO: I couldn't agree more. I plan to get my flu shot ASAP. I don't catch crud years I get shots. I catch crud once or twice in the years that I don't. It's that simple.
Question: Do you plan to get a flu shot this year?
