The height of the flu season is well underway, and it isn’t too late to get one.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that between Oct. 1 and Dec. 7, between 2.6 million and 3.7 million people in the United States had the flu, and up to 3,300 of those patients died as a result.
Because cancer patients may be more susceptible to contracting the flu, patients and caregivers need to get their shot.
