September 29 - Do you have your flu shot?

September 29 - Time to get your flu shot-and investigate how the influenza pandemic of 1918 affected your ancestors. See <> and search historical newspapers for lists of those who died.

I remembering talking to my dad as I was going through a cemetery with him and commenting on how many people died in 1918. He reminded me that was the Spanish Flu and many died, especially the ones you would have thought were young and healthy. I found out later, it was because they were the ones helping the sick and became sick themselves.
