The dreaded Flu Shot

flu-shot_0

Ohhhh the dreaded flu!  My husband got his shot yesterday.  I always thought why would I inject a virus into me to prevent getting a virus?  But now that I have a two year old I want to make sure that we do not pass anything to him that his little body cannot handle at this point.  So today I am going to get my shot.  Unfortunately NYU doesn’t have the flu nasal mist vaccination 😦

The CDC (Center of Disease Control and Prevention) recommends everyone 6 months and older should get the vaccine. Please note: There are a few exceptions that you can find here http://www.cdc.gov/flu/ or on any of the websites below.
