Sickweather, the world's first real-time sickness tracking service, has launched Sickweather Alerts, a subscription-based email alert system that notifies members when the risk of illness has increased within 25 miles of their location.  The alert system is built upon Sickweather's patent-pending process that distills reports of illnesses from social media services like Twitter and Facebook, which was used to identify the early 2012 Flu Season 6 weeks before the CDC.  For a limited time, people can sign up for Sickweather Alerts at with the following promotional code for one free alert: 1free

Additionally, Sickweather is looking to partner with schools and Parent-Teacher Associations to offer additional custom discounts for Back-To-School season.  To inquire on behalf of your school or association, please email:
