Eeny – Meenie – Miney – Moe —Should I Even Bother Getting A Flu Shot??
It’s not like i’m afraid of needles….i’m really not. And i LOVE my Doctor….i’m actually really good friends with my nurse practitioner, so i know and like everyone in the office. Every year i get a flu shot and every year i don’t get the flu….Yaaaaaay!!! But i wonder…is that because of the vaccine? Or because i wouldn’t have gotten the flu anyway?
I found this really fascinating article off refinery29.com and it is all about the science of the flu vaccine. It’s about the myths, too. I’m sure you’ve heard of a friend of a friend who went and got the flu vaccine and then came down with the flu, yeah??? They address ALL these things. Plus the side effects.
Let’s go do some learnin’ today….what do ya say??
