You and the Flu

Every year around this time, the bombardment begins. Every expert pushes each and every one of us to get a flu shot like our lives depend on it. It starts to sound like carnival barkers: Get your flu shot here!


And yet it seems that millions suffer from the flu each and every winter. We see tons of advertisements showing miserable people suffering from extreme symptoms of cough, fever and runny nose.


I have elderly family members whose doctors faithfully administer their flu shots and every winter, they get the flu at least once.
