Second Wave Of Flu Could Hit Rockford
Just when you thought it was safe to shake hands again, the flu could be making its way back to the state line area.
Luckily, when I got sick over the winter it only lasted a couple of days.
I had friends and family that it stuck with them for weeks.
Plus, it hit lots of people at the same time. I remember a couple of schools in the Chicago suburbs closed for a couple of days because there were so many kids out sick.
As the weather is getting better, I usually think of the flu season being over.
Well, according to time.com
This year flu season peaked in February and activity levels have dropped for the first strand.
Now, a second virus is making its way around.
Even if you already had the flu this year, there is a chance you could catch it again because it's a different type.
The good news is this wave responds better to vaccines.
So, don't start touching doorknobs at work yet.
