Happy New Year, and welcome back! We discuss the current flu epidemic and what you and your family can do about it – here’s the CDC’s Flu Info site. We also discuss vaccinations and why they’re important. We’re reviewing this subject in light of this article from Ben Goldacre about antivax parents changing their opinions after their child contracts a deadly but preventable disease. We hope this child has a speedy and major recovery!
Also, I’m excited to be gearing up for HTGYG’s 150th episode! Please send in your comments and well wishes – I’d love to hear from all of you! Please email or call by Feb. 1, and I’ll put you in the show! Thanks so much to everyone for listening and support!
Please email me with your own comments at howtogrowyourgeek-at-gmail-dot-com, or call my voicemail number at (678) 235-GROW (4769) and leave your thoughts.
