    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    A great weekend to get your flu vaccine!
    Dan Brennan, MD posted:
    If you haven't yet had a chance to get your flu vaccine for this season, this is a great weekend to get it done. Most communities, peds offices and pharmacies around the country will be hosting community flu clinics.

    Children less than 9 years old who have never received a flu vaccine should get two doses of vaccine separated by one month. Ideally, we'd like to see our patients get their (one or two) flu vaccine(s) before Influenza arrives.

    Happy Halloween!

    Dr. Dan
