Please people...get your shot ASAP!!! All the negative stuff is made up! It just might save your life and the life of someone you love. This is not the ordinary flu...it has killed over 200 people so far in the state. This is not the time to be "right" about myths...it could kill you!

Why are deaths of people over 55 not counted among the flu deaths?
