Getting vaccinated continues to be the best - and easiest - way to keep you and your family healthy this flu season. And it's not too late - flu rates typically don't peak until late February or March. There's still plenty of flu vaccine available, so call your health care provider to set up an appointment -- or find a local flu clinic at www.mylocalclinic.com. In the meantime, we hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!
