March 19. Day 79. The flu shot

Some people will do anything for a free lollipop. Today I had my annual flu shot and because I was a good girl that means a free lollipop. My employer offers flu shots for free so every year I line up to be jabbed although honestly I do question whether it is worth the effort. I wonder if anyone has done a public health study comparing the cost of mass vaccination versus the cost of days lost to flu with a largely unvaccinated staff.
Anyway, I'm protected for another year. Are you?


  1. Not yet. But last year I missed getting the shot for the first time in 8 years and for the first time in 8 years got the flu so badly I couldn't stand up for four days. Not missing it this year.

  2. Not yet. I have getting the flu shots for many years - Flu makes Asthma worse so best to avoid getting flu.

  3. What flavour did you get? Not sure but I think I miss my shot last year so will need to update shortly..
