Thanks for posting this--I have friends with asthma, and their specialists INSIST they get both a flu shots, and the pneumonia shot (that one every 2 years). Pregnant women should also get a flu shot, and the elderly. I just wish I could get my Mom to get one (and she's a former nurse, yet, and a heavy smoker, but will she get one? Nope.)
Honestly, guys, the shot only takes a few seconds, and doesn't hurt. You don't have to look, either (this from a woman who's petrified of big bridges; and, when someone says, "Just don't look down", I reply, "But I KNOW I'm on the bridge, even if I don't look at it!", so who am I to lecture you about a needle phobia?!!?
