Take the aluminum out of the vaccine and more people will get the shot. I'd rather take my chances with the flu - it's better for me than the shot.

Earlier this week I was whining about having what I declared to be "the fluh" which was the flu without the fever.

I am over it.

But, the flu - the real flu - is on a tear and this year may be the worst for "seasonal flu" in more than a decade.

Yesterday the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has upped the ante and announced that this flu season is starting earlier, the virus is infecting more people, and this year's main strain (H3N2) may kill as many as 50,000 in the United States.
