It’s National Preparedness Month and we want you to be prepared for the upcoming flu season (October through May). Influenza, or the flu, affects 5 to 20 percent of the U.S population each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

An additional $16 billion worth of earnings is lost annually.
