USA – Good news! The Centers for Disease Control says there’s less flu in the nation. The bad news, it’s spread to even more locations.

Two weeks ago 41 states were in flu frenzy and now a total of 47 states are seeing the flu hit different areas of their states. While we’ve heard this season’s flu could be the end of the world as we know it, the CDC says these numbers are the mark of a “classic flu epidemic.”

If you feel like you’re coming down with the symptoms though, you might need a flu shot but you’ve probably heard about the dreaded flu shot shortage. No need to panic. Vaccine manufacturer’s say there are plenty of shots for those who want them!.

However, if you don’t feel good, stay home for everyone’s sake!
