I usually get my shot at the drug store because I don’t like to go to the doctor’s office and sit in the waiting room with sick people before I get my shot.
The flu season runs from about October until March and it takes a couple of weeks for the vaccine to be effective.
My flu shot helps protect against the flu. It also helps protect those I come into contact with.
There were an estimated 80,000 deaths related to the flu during the last flu season. That is higher than average and maybe this flu season won’t be as bad this year or maybe it will be worse.
