    Boston declares health emergency amid U.S. flu outbreak



    http://news.yahoo.com/boston-declares-health-emergency-amid-u-flu-outbreak-030031382.html


    So, I ran across this article on Yahoo News today. And as a SK fan, of course.. the first thing that went through my head is, "Captain Trips!!". So Im browsing the comments, and it only took about half a page of scrolling before the 1st Captain Trips comments! haha

    True. But, I was more impressed with some of the comments I saw.

    Among them,

    "baby can you dig yo' man.... he's a righteous man"

    "M O O N spells flu"

    "i hope I dont see the walkin' dude"

    It seems to have hit Alberta,too. I am okay so far though I do not get the flu shot. The pharmacies offer the shot here....free,of course. Do you have to pay for them in the States?

    Not sure. Some employers give them for free, and some pharmacies do as well for seniors. Ive refused mine each time Ive been offered, and have never gotten the flu (knock on wood). I don't trust em.

    I just got an email from our HR with tips to staying healthy and saying they will reimburse us for our flu shots. Crazy.

    Youngest has a nasty cold or, possibly, the flu;
    Thereby guaranteeing that I'm gonna get it too.
    If this is the milder version ('cause he got the shot),
    I could be in trouble here because his mom did not.

    Doctors still advise that people go for the vaccine,
    Cough into their sleeve, don't touch their face, and keep hands clean.
    I do not like any shots that I don't have to get,
    But this season is among the worst on record yet.

    Boston's mayor has just declared a health emergency,
    And they've started offering the flu vaccine for free.
    If that's what my poor son has I'm probably too late;
    Just another victim of the virus in my state.
