Allergy Symptoms vs. Flu SymptomsIt is officially fall, which means fun, seasonal activities like pumpkin patches, apple orchards and hayrides are in full swing. As picturesque as the changing leaves are and as much as we may enjoy taking part in festive activities in the cool sweater weather, the fall season tends to bring about more severe allergies, colds and flu cases.
Seniors and Flu PreventionFlu season is in full swing yet again.

The flu is a highly contagious respiratory illness, and in some cases can even be fatal.
