Usually, we provide feel-good content or posts on how to make your massage experience most enjoyable. Today we want to take a break from all that to share a little PSA. If you didn’t get your flu shot yet, do it now.
This year is looking to be as bad, if not worse, than last year for the flu. For most people, they may think “ok, so I might get a fever”, but the flu is still deadly. Last year about 80 thousand people died of the flu. The average is usually between 30 and 40 thousand.
The flu is getting bolder and more dangerous. Part of the reason is because of changing climate. The winters are getting overall warmer but also more hectic. Days where there’s sudden temperature shifts (i.e. how we jumped 20+ degrees right before the new year) are ideal for spreading the flu.
Getting your flu shot is not just for you either. The more people in a group who have immunity to a virus, the more likely that the entire group becomes immune, meaning you can stop the flu from impacting others around you as well.
Help your neighbors out, and get your flu shot before the season kicks in.
