Flu season has started, and Georgia is already topping the list for the number of cases in the nation. According to Channel 2 Action News, the flu killed 151 people in Georgia last year, including four children. It is important to get the flu shot early on when the season starts in October, as it helps prevent the virus.

The shot is not a 100 percent guarantee of protection, so the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises to keep clean by washing your hands and practicing other good health habits. This will provide the health and safety for you and others, while reducing the risk of contracting the flu and spreading it.
