Get flu shot, then worry about Ebola [Letter]

September 20, 2014

It may be reasonable to be prepared in case Ebola presents in the U.S., but would our population not do better to listen to rational information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other authoritative sources? Flu presents a real, proven threat to health, life and productivity in the U.S. ("The Ebola threat," Sept. 16)

We would do well to have our flu shot before concerning ourselves with a less-easily-contracted illness which has no record of originating here.

If you are not in a vulnerable segment of the population, please be vigilant not to be a carrier who infects people who are.

Margie Saunders, Towson
