Hi Grandma, I'm here to celebrate the holidays with you and NO, I did not get the flu shot! Let me give you a big hug and a kiss on the cheek!
Uh, yeah. If only more people took the "Honesty Pill" and what came out of their mouths was the truth.
But failing widespread distribution of such a pill, we might want to keep an eye on folks, especially those who are members of our family.
The reality is, if you get the flu shot you will help protect not only yourself, but your family, your friends, your co-workers, people who work at the grocery story, people who work at your doctor's office, people at the Farmers Market, etc etc etc. (Is this list long enough for you?).
Supposedly there is at least some nominal belief in this country in "Love thy neighbor as thyself"..... and even if you don't love yourself enough to get the flu shot you should at least take care of the other members of your family and vastly reduce your odds of getting and spreading this potentially lethal respiratory illness to them.
So where do you find out information about the flu shot? How about the Yolo County Department of Public Health website? What? You have not gone to the website yet? You are not familiar with it? Would it help if I told you they were handing out free stuff there? Well, go look!
