Medical Monday: Flu shots no laughing matter

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Various strains of flu virus kill thousands of people each year across the nation, and cost the U.S. economy about $40 billion in medical care and lost work productivity, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The CDC recommends that nearly all adults and children older than 6 months receive an annual flu vaccine to stop its spread.

In today's Medical Monday segment, Geraldine Roberts, a nurse at Arkansas Children's Hospital is putting a special emphasis on the importance of flu shots for children.

Getting a flu shot is essential for children. They are the most vulnerable population for not only getting the flu, but also for becoming critically ill and even dying from influenza.

In the days of the twenty-four hour news cycle and the Internet, it's really hard to keep a secret when it comes to politics. Everyone has skeletons in the closet but thankfully most of us are not politicians who have skeletons that can turn them from heroes to villians with only a few keystrokes. It's nothing new, we just hear about it quicker and it's repeated in the news cycle until we can't forget about it.
