1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium
heat. Tear four 12 x 24-inch sheets heavy-duty aluminum foil. Arrange sheets
horizontally; spray with cooking spray. On right, center of each sheet, evenly
divide beans, tomatoes, garlic and leeks; top each with 1 cod fillet. Evenly
divide lemon, butter and thyme over cod. Cupping foil slightly, evenly pour
wine over butter; evenly sprinkle with salt and pepper. For each packet, fold
left side of foil over filling; crimp edges of foil to seal tightly.
2. Place packets on hot grill rack; cover and cook 15
minutes or until internal temperature of cod reaches 145°.
With scissors or knife, cut an ‘X’ in center
of packet; carefully pull back foil to open.
It might seem obvious, but the number one benefit
of getting a flu shot is to keep people from getting sick. During the 2017-2018
flu season, the flu vaccine prevented an estimated 6.2 million flu illnesses,
3.2 million flu medical visits, over 90,000 hospitalizations and 5,700 deaths,
according to the CDC. Let’s think about that for a moment. As of August 24,
2020, there are over 23.4 million cases of COVID-19 worldwide in just a few
short months because no vaccine is available. If we didn’t have a flu vaccine,
it is possible the number of positive flu-related cases would be much
higher. We have a way to reduce flu
related illness and prevent flu related deaths.
The CDC outlines the following benefits of flu vaccines:
Can keep you from getting sick with the flu
Reduces the risk of flu-associated hospitalizations for
children, adults, and the elderly
Vaccines are a preventative tool for people with chronic health
Protects women during and after pregnancy. A flu vaccine given
during pregnancy helps protect the baby from flu for several months after
Reduces severity of flu illness in those few people that still
get the flu
Protects your family and loved ones
Who should get vaccinated?
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a
flu vaccine. There are age appropriate vaccines for people 6 months, 18 and
older, and those over 65 years old.
Who should not get vaccinated?
Children under 6 months are too young for a flu
shot. People with flu vaccine allergies and those not feeling well should
consult with their doctor before getting a flu shot.
