Get Ready for the Flu Season

I was the first in the family to get the Flu shot this year. When I called my Primary Care doctor's office, they had an opening the next day so off I went. The kids are already scheduled to have their Flu shot next month while dh will have his at work. This year, the Center for Disease Control recommended that all children under 19 years old get the Flu shot. My daughter has been getting her Flu shots every year even though it wasn't recommended by her doctor. It really makes a big difference, we rarely get sick during Winter. Some people take these for granted, they probably do not know that every year in the United States, on average 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications, and; about 36,000 people die from flu. So if you do not want to suffer this coming Flu season, get yourself and your family immunized.


  1. Hi there-dropped by via entrecard...

    I've only had a flu shot once, and that year I was the sickest I've ever been. It was disappointing because I know lots of people like you who love them. Of course, as I type this, I am getting sick. :(

    Sorry to hear about your bad experience with the Flu shot. You're probably one of the small percentage that gets a bad reaction to this. Just drink lots of fluid and take extra pre-cautions. :o)

  4. Getting yourself immunized is very important, especially your kids. As a mother I make sure the my lil girl is protected. It is a big help. In my part I had my bad experience with flu, good thing it wasn't that bad. :)

  5. Thanks for the reminder Barb,I'll ask our doctor if we can have flu shot for the 3 of us.

    Pareho tayo ng napuntahan sa Italy except lang na nagstay kami ng matagal sa beach side ng Tuscan

    By the way,thanks Barb for the visits,I really appreciated it.

  6. You're right Babette, we should be immunized with the flu shot...Sabi nga nila, sa panahon ngaun, bawal ang magkasakit.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :o)
