This year’s flu season has been dominated by Influenza A, subtype H3N2, a particularly nasty strain that is linked to more severe illnesses, especially among adults over the age of 65 and children younger than the age of 5. Flu shots are available at the 92nd Medical Group. The current vaccine protects against four strains of flu viruses, two strains of Influenza A and two strains of Influenza B. Protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated as soon as possible. (Courtesy Photo)
