Fans Headed to Super Bowl Asked to Get Flu Shot
The flu epidemic is giving new meaning to “Super Bowl fever.” Authorities fear U.S. Banks Stadium in Minneapolis, where the game is being held, could become a giant Petri dish for the flu virus. Fans going to Minneapolis are being asked to get vaccinated or not attend the game if they are sick. A million visitors are expected. In past years cities that have sent teams to the Super Bowl reportedly suffered a spike in flu deaths among people over 65.
