Default Uh-oh....

Two friends in Clark County, neither vaxxed, came down with Influenza A. One got it from attending a funeral, other caught it from her. Both sick as dogs. Sounds like it will spread along the I-5 corridor.

Got my shot a couple of weeks ago, but DH hasn't. Done with winter prep shopping, so staying dug in.....

It's overwhelmingly H3N2 in your area so far this season. No nasty surprises reported anywhere yet.

My entire family is vaxxed this year.

Just as we were last year when my wife and I both came down with the flu.

Sure hope it's more effective this year!

I'll let you know when it arrives up here. So far, it's just Sporadic.
