Due to an unwarranted fear of shots, I used to say that I'd rather have the flu than get a flu shot. That is, until, I got the actual flu. The bad one! I was in bed for ten days and it took a full three weeks to recover. Before that, I used to wonder how anyone could ever die from the flu. After getting it, I understood fully. Ever since, I'm one of the first to get the vaccine. I can't afford to be ill for three weeks and I don't ever want to have that experience again.
The flu is making its rounds. My nephew has it and now my brother - his dad.
We'll have to see if I'm immune. I have no idea how many people actually get it after being vaccinated. I just know that I don't want to have regrets about not having gotten the shot.
I know that there's some controversy surrounding vaccines due to the COVID pandemic and I don't feel qualified to debate on the topic. I just know that you don't want to get the severe flu that I had.
If you haven't crossed this off of your todo list, it's not too late. Get the shot!
