its time to do it

Image result for cdc flu shots

look in the mirror
if you have gray hair
then you need a flu shot
you are probably in a hi risk group
the elderly

elderly folks dont do well when they get the flu
may die from it

now if you are a female
look down at your tummy
if you are pregnant
you need a flu shot

if you are pregnant
your husband and your other kids and your parents and in laws all need to get a flu shot

if you have kids they need a flu shot
if they are over 6 months old
they are at risk your kids by going to school playing sports doing things kids do with other kids

if you have an under 6 months old baby
everyone who comes in contact with those little babies need a flu shot
miss one and you can have a little sick one on your hands this year

do you or your loved ones have a chronic disease like heart disease asthma copd diabetes or are they on some immunocompromising drug or are they immunocompromised
they all need a flu shot that person and whoever is around them

if you are a school teacher you definitely need one
you know how germy those classrooms are

lets see we are getting to where we can say
eveyone needs one

i wouldnt get the nasal spray since the old ones didnt work well
they say the new one does
i dont know about that
the nasal spray is a live virus so you have to be careful who gets it and who they are around
like a immunocompromised person or a pregnant person eg

a little needle prick aint going to hurt you
too much

over 80,000 people died from the flu last year
the largest in a long time
they are trying to prevent that from happening again
if we all got the flu shot then that number will drop

this last year was the worse since the 1976 season
in 1918 over 500,000 folks died in the us from the flu

i will get mine next month
since i get those monthly infusions i have just a few days a month that i can get immunizations
my day is around october 16 +- a day

i want to protect mr h and ms b also
sorry ms b you gotta get one also

be sure and get your flu shot this fall
your life and others lives may depend on it
