Who the Flu?

I'm going to get my flu shot in a few minutes, finally. Now everyone in our family will be up to speed.

I notice that compared to last year, this year (nationally) has been a piece of cake when it comes to flu activity.

I posted last December that as of 12/11/04 flu activity in the US was really gearing up:

If you recall there was a big shortage of vaccines and people were lining up in the rain and cold to get theirs.

Today, as of November 26 it's barely registering on the radar screens:

US Flu Activity as of 11/26/05

I don't know if it's better awareness, more people getting shots, kids getting misted or just luck of the draw. Whatever the reason, I hope it lasts.
