Get the Shot

I realize there are benighted (and dangerous) people out there with paranoia about having kids vaccinated. But if you are deciding not to get a flu shot, think again. You can’t get the flu from a flu shot. It’s not 100% effective but is effective in preventing the flu, and it’s especially important for children and the elderly.
