Flu season is just about upon us and the best thing you can do right now, is to call your doctor and get your flu shot.

It's hard to predict just how hard the influenza will strike Michiganders this year, because every flu season is different, so we can't really predict how severe or mild a season may be.

According to the Detroit Free Press, seasonal flu activity most commonly begins to rear its ugly head as early as October.  The number of cases tend to peak nationally from December to February.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the best thing that we can do to prepare for this flu season, is begin to vaccinate as many people as possible.  Flu vaccine is recommended for all people 6 months of age and older.
