Getting Ready for a Tough Flu Year

Getting Ready for a Tough Flu Year

By ETR | January 5, 2015

The flu season is mightily upon us. The CDC’s fluview map, showing current activity in influenza-like illnesses across the country, is looking extremely red this week.

The CDC is predicting a severe flu season this year—more people affected, more serious consequences and more deaths. And while the vaccine is less effective than we’d like it to be, it’s still offering valuable protection.

Encouraging people to get a flu vaccine is one practical step. Another is creating norms about hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes. This might be a good time to take a look at ETR’s product page on colds and flu.

And now we're off to wash our hands! Stay healthy!
