Sooner or later everyone’s going to get
the flu and the only question is when. Flu is one of the big causes of
absenteeism from school and from work. To me, those are good enough reasons to get
vaccinated every year because I don’t want to have the symptoms and I don’t
want to miss several days of work and I don’t want my kids missing several days
of school. Even if I’m not trying to protect myself, I like to get
vaccinated to make sure that I don’t spread it to somebody else who might
suffer much worse than I would.
