Update: I gave in to the shot. Now I’m swinging my arm around in circles.
Or rather, vaccinated? I need your opinions. The “Shot Nurse” is coming to the office tomorrow with a truckload of flu vaccine and I’ve gotten about a dozen reminder emails to wear rollable sleeves and, Don’t worry, it’s free! But I’m wondering – should I leave those shots for other people? I haven’t heard anything about shortages the last couple of years, but I remember well when there was one. I look at the list of people who need them – the elderly, children, people of any age with serious health conditions – and it seems like something I should skip in the hopes that a person in one of those categories is able to get vaccinated in my place.
Thoughts? Do you guys get flu shots? If not, do you actually get THE FLU? (I never know if I have a cold or the flu, but the way they talk about it makes me feel like it should always be in all caps and have its own B-grade horror movie.) Also, do you ever find yourself typing “flue” over and over again by mistake?
