“What I find most disturbing about Valentine’s Day is, look, I get that you have to have a holiday of love, but in the height of flu season, it makes no sense.” — Lewis Black

According to my very rough calculations the flu season is half done and that means (theoretically at least) that if you have not had your flu shot and are playing the odds in favor of you not contracting the virus, your chances are getting slimmer every day.
Many folks that I know and family members as well, tell me that they “do not believe in getting a flu shot”. I try to assure them that getting immunized is not a matter of their personal belief set but a fact of life.
Contagious germs and viruses are out there and a person has to protect themselves as best they can.
For folks over 65 years of age (self included) it’s recommended that the regular flu vaccine is accompanied by a shot to protect against pneumococcus pneumonia.
My partner Susan and I (we have received both vaccines) would like to know your opinion on this topic. Don’t hold back and give us your reasons for the course of action you chose.
Hopefully the flu season will end soon and you and your family will be free from this health concern. – gc
