It's that time of the year again… flu season!
We hope everyone got their flu shots!
Google has been tracking how bad the flu is based on aggregated google search data.
Basically that means they're probably looking at the frequency of searches like "how long does flu last?" or "flu remedies" or "I have the flu."
According to google, everywhere has "intense" flu activity, except a handful of states. Though there's still "high" activity in those states.
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said:
"We are in for what looks like it's going to be one of the worst flu seasons in nine or ten years."
Oh jeez, that's no good!
Never fear, flu shots are still available!
Head to your doctor's or even just a pharmacy down the road and get yo vaccine on!
Flu sucks, so make sure to wash your hands with soap and hot water, try not to touch your face and cover your mouth when you cough!
