Got a bug this past weekend, seems to have all but passed now. Company is having flu shots available in house on Nov 3rd or you can go to your doctor and get one after Nov 1 if you want free for nothing.
I got the flu last year. First time in a long time. I usually get the vaccine because I'm a health care worker, but I wait until the end to make sure all the old people were able to get their vaccination first. I waited too long and didn't get the shot. Then some sick patient infected me. I had to take the week off, hospital policy, even though I was only sick for about 3 days.
Last year's vaccine was only about 40% effective from what I've heard. This year's vaccine is supposed to be a much better formulation to match current strains.
