As someone in the Real Estate industry, you are exposed to multiple people and often required to enter into a stranger's home. As we approach the time of year to consider flu season, I am wondering if anyone has any particular stories about a flu shot and why they do or do not get one each year. It seems that more and more people are telling me that they DO NOT get the flu vaccine and end up fine at the end of the season.

I have a healthcare background and I am familiar with Influenza and the different strains supposedly covered by different vaccines. I am also aware that "flu-like symptoms" are not necessarily influenza.

I never really considered the potential impact this illness could potentially have on the agents in our office until this year. They do not know what situation they walk into in all cases.Repeated exposure to infected persons cannot be good! I guess this can occur in any public place, but these are the people I work with every day so I am interested in their insight!

One local company is already gearing up to offer the flu vaccine and has already received an allotment of vaccine. They are recommending a flu shot for anyone over 6 months of age. That article can be found RIGHT HERE and I am interested in hearing your personal stories. Flu shot...or not? Please share!

 

Just my thoughts...
