Flu season is upon us, and if reports are correct, this one is going to be a doozy. Even if you already got the flu shot (and good for you if you did!), the 2016 flu shot was only 42% effective. And if our flu season is anything like Australia's, which just ended on August 31, there's possibly an even less chance of its effectiveness.
There are a few things you could do in this situation. The first is to get a flu shot, especially if you're under your employer's health insurance. There's no co-pay at many Walgreens (WBA) - Get Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc Report pharmacies depending on your provider. Secondly, stay healthy as possible and avoid the ill and those prone to hypochondria, because the latter can get annoying.
A sore throat can ruin even the best of days. Stay ahead of the game, and throw a pack of these in your desk.
