State health official have confirmed four cases of influenza, all in children, in South Dakota. State epidemiologist Don Kightlinger says the vaccine is readily available this year.

Now is a good time to be vaccinated”

Kightlinger also urges using common sense to stop the flu from spreading, such as by washing hands frequently, covering mouths when coughing and sneezing and staying home when sick.

Whether you have kids in day care, school, or have a health care professional in your home, you might want to consider getting a flu shot early.

Then, of course, we all know people who are against the flu shot for their own reasons. Like my friend, Ben, who works two cubicles away from me, who said:

I don’t believe in them. It’s just another way for big government to control you.”

Okay…I’ll still share my Clorox wipes with you.
