Hey Kid: Get A Flu Shot

I believe in being proactive when it comes to health and I still believe in immunizations.  We've come a long way in medicine and as a society, we've been able to irradicate some very serious diseases.  Immunizations are a simple way to prevent some fairly serious illnesses. We learned this lesson in 2010 when Chief contracted Pertussis (Whooping Cough.)  It was a very scary time for all of us but especially for Chief.  He would have coughing attacks and almost lose consciousness.  There is no treatment.  He just had to endure and it lasted for several months.  All of it could have been prevented if he had just kept up with his immunizations.

Get your shots and keep up with the boosters.  I know it's a hassle, but believe me... so is illness.  It only take a few minutes and you'll only have to worry about it once a year (for flu.)
