Does your employer offer flu vaccines? Many do now but even if that's not an option for you, there are plenty of other places to find them!

Antibiotic resistance is a very real problem in our world today. Antibiotics are amazing and wonderful drugs, but they have been vastly overused, leading to bacteria that have mutated and evolved and developed resistance to the medications we have. All of us have contributed to the problem - but we can also be part of the solution.

Don't push your doctor for antibiotics. If he offers them, be sure they are REALLY necessary and not just an attempt to give you something because (in the case of most viruses) the real treatment is time. EDUCATE YOURSELF about when these drugs will help and when they won't.

Why do we have to get flu vaccines EVERY year? See how long they actually last and why this is the only vaccine that has to be repeated each time the earth circles the sun.

So you got sick after getting your flu shot. Did the vaccine actually give you the flu?
