I've been sick the last few days (forgive me for the lack of posting) so when I saw our recent article on Flu shots in Bulletin Today, of course it struck a chord with me.
Who should get a flu shot? While I think anyone working in an office of more than two people should get one, technically, this is the flu shot profile:
- People age 50 and older
- Nursing home residents
- Health care workers
- People with chronic diseases that weaken their immune systems
- People who are in contact with those at high risk for flu
- Children and teens, from six months to 18 years old
- Pregnant women
If you're like me, you don't have time for a doctor's appointment so you can check out senior centers, pharmacies and public clinics in your community for free or low-cost shots.
