That's a good reason to get a flu shot.
If you're young and healthy, there's a tendency to think, Why should I bother? What's the big deal with getting the flu? Well, one reason to get a flu shot is to protect those around you. Babies, old people, people with compromised immune systems - flu can be devastating, even fatal, to them. Or people with lung conditions like asthma or chronic bronchitis.
I can't quite grasp some peoples' reticence to getting a flu vaccine. It goes against science!
