So, what do you think? Back in the day when I was more involved in the medical world, the big fear with the flu wasn't so much the actual flu which feels horrible, don't get me wrong, but the secondary infections that people got. Pneumonia being a big one and I've read more and more about sepsis post flu.
Do you think the flu shot could ultimately save lives or is it a waste of time? Because on the other hand, really getting the flu doesn't happen all that much to most people. I've had 'true flu' two times in my life. You know the difference of flu verses other illnesses if you have ever had it. I had it once in college along with half my dorm and once in my 20's where I didn't surface from my apartment for a week. So, to get the flu shot or not? Thoughts??
