IT’S FLU SEASON
It is not too late to get your flu shot. Higher than expected incidence of flu cases are found in Louisiana and Puerto Ricco. While you may think these sites are far from Iowa, the fact is diseases can be spread many miles across state and international lines in less than 24 hours with today’s travel patterns. Please get your flu vaccine now.
