Flu season is upon us once again and experts say it’s time to get your flu shot. On today’s show, Taryn Chapman, aka The Vaccine Mom, joined me to discuss different aspects of influenza to include symptoms, available drugs and a little virology.
In addition, she talks to me about the flu vaccine–the types of vaccines available this season, people that should and shouldn’t get the vaccine and where you can get vaccinated.
