Take Our Poll: Do You Get A Flu Shot?
Tis' the season for the dreaded three letter word...the F-L-U!! The horror. It's already popping up in Maine...earlier than usual. People are posting, like crazy, all over Facebook. I wonder, can you cyber catch the flu? You watch...it'll be a thing one day.
With all the flu talk...and by flu, I mean INFLUENZA, it makes me wonder: How many people actually get the flu vaccine?
Me? Nope. And I've had influenza. It's H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS!! It literally hits you instantly, like a ton of bricks, and lasts for weeks. And that was a year I got the flu shot. I'm not a doctor, I'm not going to get into the medical mumbo jumbo. For me, I will not get one.
But others swear by it. Some are mandated by work to get one.
I will clarify for some, who get the two confused...the flu vaccine is supposed to protect you from influenza...NOT the stomach virus. 2 different things. As well as the common cold.
