The 2019-20 Flu season!

Taney County Missouri - Week 42 of the flu season for 2019-20 was Oct 13 to Oct 19. Still very early in the going as the flu normally peaks in late January. That said, some states including Missouri have seen a definite uptick in the number of cases.

Above is a graphic taken from the CDC report. It indicates that the number of individuals reporting showing up with symptoms of the flu at state clinics is above the 'baseline' or what is normally observed for the time of year.

The message here is very clear - please consider getting a flu shot!
