Online map shows your county's likelihood of contracting the flu. I wouldn't bet my life on it, but it appears that Texas, Iowa, and California should be aware.

My county said "mild" and I had a flu shot, so I hope I don't get it.

I always thought that having the flu (stomach flu) was THE FLU....But I have been told it is more of a respiratory ailment.

I never like the stomach flu....you go to the bathroom and not sure which end is going 1st!

It shows that I'm in "mild" , I haven't gotten the flu or really any sickness in a couple years, I hope it stays that way! It helps that I never leave the farm :thumbs:

Surprised that California is that high. Was sure that such a health concious state would have eradicated from within their border. :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:

My county is "mild"  the next county south (where I work) is "moderate"  

no flu shot for me, never have taken one,  even though I can get them for free. I haven't had the flu in about 10 years,

I know 3 people over the last 2 years that got the dang thing and then were sicker than dogs (with the flu) within a couple days after. 

Shots are supposed to prevent getting sick, not promote it.  No thanks.

Not sure how up to date that is... There were 60 kids absent from just the Elementary School today. Our is a small school and that's almost a whole small Graduating class. May be the stomach flu, WH knows.
No idea how many were absent from the middle and high school, but rumor has it that the number was high.

We are in a mild spot on the map

That might of been useful info back when everyone walked uphill (both ways) to school through waist deep snow against a 30 mph wind. I think with today's mobile society that the map really don't mean squat.

Other than quarantining California with armed guards. But that's been a good idea since long before that map came out.

Probably, but some sounded like they thought it was a seasonal forecast, which it isn't. But I digress, carry on.

I found a website the other day were hospitals reported in on the number andntype of flue cases that were reported in areas. It was on the CDC website I believe.
