The CDC is begging people to get vaccinated so that flu season isn’t as bad as it was last year
As we hang on to the very last days of summer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wants people to keep the upcoming flu season in the back of their minds. With the memory of last year's deadly flu season still fresh in everyone's memory, the CDC is already urging people to plan their vaccinations.
As CNBC reports, the CDC has some very important statistics for anyone thinking of skipping the flu shot. According to the group, a whopping 180 children died from last year's strain, and roughly four out of five of those kids weren't vaccinated.
