Health Director, Beth Lovette noted that, “The flu season usually peaks in January or February, but can last as long as May, so it is not too late to get a flu shot.” Statistics show that getting the flu results in at least a week of lost work or school time. Each year 36,000 individuals across the US die from the seasonal flu. The complications of flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear infections, sinus infections, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes.
