Get ready, get set, get sick!
Flu season has finally arrived and according to sources, it's pretty late this year! In fact, health officials have deemed this February start the LATEST in 25 years!
People usually start getting under the weather with flu symptoms starting in December or January, but doctors have just recently received enough cases to declare that flu season has begun.
The CDC said on Friday that California (Nooooooo!!!) is the only state so far to have wide-spread cases for the last two weeks, while Missouri has seen a spike in individuals affected with the illness.
Well, we avoided it for as long as we could, but we hope you've got some sick days left and lots of vitamin C on hand!
