Today’s message is short and sweet:
GET YOUR FLU SHOTS!!!
Why? Because you don’t want to get the flu. You don’t want the people around you to get the flu.
The flu SUCKS. It kills people every year. Our Bear had it when he was nine months old, and it was SCARY. He had to have an inhaler for a year after because it had inflamed his bronchial tubes.
You don’t want your kid on an inhaler.
Because of the Pandemic: Get Your Flu Shots
This year especially, you’ll want to get a flu shot.
Assuming they get the mix right and it’s an effective vaccine this year, you want to make sure you’re protected from influenza.
The coronavirus is still out there. People are still dying of it.
It’s bad enough that we have a pandemic, we don’t want to also be dealing with a flu epidemic. If you get symptoms of fever, headache, etc., you don’t want to ask yourself whether you’re dealing with flu or coronavirus.
Eliminate the possibility that it’s the flu.
Get your flu shots.
Show How Much You Care
Do you care about your neighbors? Your family? The people in your local grocery store?
Do you care about your elderly relatives? Your small children? Your nieces and nephews?
Then WEAR A MASK.
Oh psych! You thought I was going to say get a flu shot! What the hell!
WEAR A MASK. GET YOUR FLU SHOT.
You don’t live in a bubble. Your choices (or refusal to make a choice, which in itself is a choice) have an effect on the people around you.
Don’t be that person. Don’t give grandma the flu OR the coronavirus.
Do what’s right.
Wear a mask. Get a flu shot.
