Clorox, Sickweather Offer Flu Help To Parents Now That FluMist Is Out Of Favor

November 17, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Household products company Clorox, maker of EPA-registered Disinfecting Wipes, has partnered with Sickweather, an illness map of sickness and symptoms, to help battle apathy regarding flu season. A survey of physicians found that nearly half of parents are likely to skip flu shots for their children, largely because of the CDC’s recommendation that FluMist “nasal spray” vaccine should not be used during this flu season. To counter this trend, people can use the Sickweather app to find out where flu and FluFOMO (“fear of missing out because of the flu”) are prevalent so they can take prevention measures. Clorox, of course, recommends its Disinfecting Wipes as a first line of defense against the germs that cause the flu. [ Flu vaccine shot. Image credit: © CDC/ Doug Jordan, MA  ]
