Protect against flu, other illness
This week I took my baby to the pediatrician. One of the first things she did was to test my runny-nosed, feverish, coughing little 10-month-old for the flu virus.
Right before she administered the test, she commented on what had already been reported in the Daily Leader’s Sunday edition: The flu is attacking locals with a vengeance, and many who contract it have had a flu shot. The doctor told me the vaccination is preventing one strain of the flu, but not the other that is circulating.
