Who should get a flu shot? I’m healthy, why should I?
Everyone should get a flu shot unless their current immune system is compromised. Children should get one because they are constantly exposed to germs and viruses at school. Getting a flu shot will help prevent them missing days of education because they are sick. Senior citizens should consider getting a flu shot to keep themselves protected from influenza. While it is relatively easy for younger people to shake off the flu, complications can arise as you get older. If you are a healthy adult, you should consider getting the flu shot to protect those around you who may not be as healthy as you. The flu can be quite contagious. You can stop the spread by preventing yourself from getting sick in the first place.
