Flu (shot) anyone?
It is simple and quick and could save a life. Go for it!
I got my flu shot yesterday so the immunity will have kicked in by the time I get on a plane on October 16th.
My husband says he relies on "herd immunity" since he hasn't been immunized for flu since one unfortunate year when his arm hurt for months after the shot. They must have hit a nerve with the needle.
But he is correct. Getting immunized protects not only you but also people who aren't immunized by choice or necessity. Fewer people getting the flu means fewer people transmitting the flu.
