The flu season has not peaked in West Michigan, so there is still time to protect yourself!

Flu.gov says:

Vaccination is the best protection against contracting the flu. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated against the flu as soon as the 2010-2011 season vaccine is available in your area.

It's widely available now.  Here's where to get vaccinated.
