It's winter: flu time!
New Yorkers love to complain -it's too hot, it's too cold, there's too much snow, not enough.
This winter is no exception. We have had an unusually mild winter - except for a freak Halloween snow squally. But now it's cold and I can't stop sneezing.
I did get my flu shot. The CDC recommends the shot for pretty much everyone, but when the person next to you on the subway coughs in your face, your vaccine may seem futile.
I won't resort to wearing a face mask, but I will breathe through my scarf and cross my sanitized fingers that the shot will protect me.
