To get the flu shot, or not to get the flu shot…that is the question.
Every year, this year especially, there’s a huge debate about whether to get the shot or not, and both sides have valid arguments. For me, I don’t get the flu shot. I never have. I take extra precautions during flu season. Washing my hands more, hand sanitizer, maybe more vitamins. I just don’t feel comfortable having viruses injected into me. It just freaks me out…even though they are designed to help.
On the other hand, my assistant Steph B., always gets a flu shot. She says it’s not for her, but it’s to protect others around her…like young children and seniors who are more suceptable to the flu virus. A valid reason I think.
I’m no doctor, I haven’t done a lot of research about the flu shot, but I want to know what your thoughts are. Do you get the shot? Why? Do you opt out? How come?
