    Default Connecticut is no longer a flu-free utopia (2013 flu season)

    Via New York magazine:
    What's being called the worst flu season in ten years is causing problems all around the country: In Boston, where flu cases are already up tenfold over last year, Mayor Thomas Menino has declared a public health emergency. In Allentown, Pennsylvania, one hospital had to set up a large tent outside to house all the extra flu patients. And in Chicago, some emergency rooms stopped taking new patients altogether because they were filled to capacity.

    ...that's the title of the article? I'm in Boston most of the time, and I work with the health department of a bordering city. There's a record number of flu cases and a shortage of vaccines, and that's the title of the article?

    I linked to two articles that were both about the Google map representation of flu season this year.

    Well, I'm glad I already had the flu this season. I shouldn't get it again, since you become immune to a flu once you get it.
