I can't understand why people won't get their flu shots. We have had quite a few people in our area that have had the flu and I have asked them why - the reasons range from "They are not necessary" to "It is a conspiracy by our government to keep giving us these things" What?!!!
The flu can be extremely dangerous especially to those small children or adults with compromised immune systems. Some people say that can't afford them - I couldn't either but I found a way to pay for it. The cost of a shot is far less than a trip to the doctor's office.
In this day and time, people should not die from the flu, but yet in 2011, over 6000 people in the US died. Yes, some of them had other illnesses that contributed, but some of those who died did not.
People need to set aside their fears of the shot and get them. It could be their own lives they save. How fair is it to others around you that you don't get your shot or you don't give your children the vaccine, and they spread the flu around?
