Did you know that flu cases in San Diego this year have already doubled compared to this time last year? This means that more people in San Diego are getting sick, with that number expected to rise during the holiday season. That is why the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes the week of December 1st as National Influenza Vaccination Week. During these seven days, the CDC reminds everyone six months or older about the importance of getting their flu vaccine and encourages anyone that has not received one to do so.
