Worse than Ebola

By now, the top false-color micrograph should be frighteningly familiar. It’s the Ebola virus, fear of which spreads faster than the actual pathogen. Below is something far more deadly – and even more familiar: the flu virus.

While there is not yet a vaccine for Ebola, there is one for the flu – a simple, single shot that almost everyone should get. There’s even a nasal spray version for those afraid of needles.

But millions of Americans each year do not get vaccinated. One reason is lethargy. Another is ignorance. Many myths surround the flu vaccine. National Public Radio recently cited 32.

Here’s myth No. 1: You should fear Ebola more than the flu.

Fact: The flu kills more people in a year in the United States than Ebola has killed in the history of the world.

Go get vaccinated.
