Did you get your flu shot?

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

This was the latest story in health news.

From my observations this does seem to be an early flu season. I've already had a lot more students out with the flu than usual. The flu vaccine is the best way to avoid getting the flu.

For those of you who workout at the gym, be diligent about wiping down the machines and other equipment BEFORE and AFTER using them. Think about yourself as well as those around you. It's nice to share but that doesn't include the flu.

    No, I didn't and I suffered mightily. Whatever's going around is killer this year! I'd highly recommend getting vaccinated if you haven't already.

    I get them for free, but still am hesitant to do so. I'm one of those old guys who doesn't like any kind of medicine. BUT, the Boss nagged me into getting one when I had my recent physical, about a week ago.

    I'm like Bill60. I never got a flu shot until I got the flu in 1990. I thought I was going to die. Never missed a shot after that and no more flu either.

    Had the flu one time and promised myself, NEVER AGAIN. So, got my flu shot early on.
