18 children have already died from flu-associated deaths this season. If you usually don't get the flu shot, will this news prompt you to do so?
I’ve never had the flu shot, nor have my children. The number 18 has struck me because it is very close to the number of young children killed in the recent shooting in Connecticut. My state, Illinois, has been hit the hardest. Luckily my daughter’s school hasn’t been affected yet, but I’m thinking I don’t want to take the chance this year.
Will these numbers change your mind? It’s not too late to get your shot.
