While making this decision, I spoke with Frost's school nurse about flu at his Elementary School. His class has not had any confirmed cases but there is a class on the 2nd floor which has an outbreak with many kids out with flu. She expects it to be a matter of time before it is more widespread and is preparing a form letter notification along the lines of the Lice is in your Classroom and Chickenpox is in your Classroom [both of which we have received this week].
I hope to get a flu shot when the new vaccine is available for adults, hopefully by the end of the month. Mum (in Australia) tells me that it is widely available there and she is getting her shot shortly.
More updates coming soon.
