Anyone who thinks they can just go to work or about their business with the flu have never had it.
The flu is a devastating illness.
It can last weeks and require many weeks of recovery. I used to get the flu every year until I started getting the shot. Recent strains have been quite deadly. The last time I got the flu it was because I waited too long to get the shot. I slept sitting upright for a week because I felt I would suffocate if I slept lying down, which is exactly what happened to a friend’s son who died of the same virus within weeks of my illness. He was fit and in his early 30s, and a father of young children.
Get the shot. That is less about you than those you could infect if you don’t.
