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.

I agree. Unfortunately due to travel I missed the clinic at the church and will have to redo. I have had the "real flu" (not just a stomach virus, the thing where you cant move for five days and have to keep a bucket near by) and my goal is never to experience that again.ReplyDelete
Barb, I had the same experience years ago. Soooo sick. I will continue to do all I can to avoid getting sick again.Delete
Good for you. I'm going later in Oct. (I hope I'm not too late!). And btw, love that beat-the-flu-bug artwork!ReplyDelete
Glad you have it on your calendar!Delete
I always get flu shots every year. I hate being sick. Its a hassle with work and daily activities.ReplyDelete
It’s good that you’re not taking chances when it comes to your health. I think this is a necessary task in your part, as it seems you travel a lot, and thus exposed to a lot of health risk. Keep taking your shots every year, and stay healthy!ReplyDelete
