If you’re an anti-vaxxer, stop reading right now, and go on about your day. But if you typically just forget to get yours (or get sick in October and stay sick through December and cannot get yours), put a note on your calendar to remind yourself to get your flu shot.
Apparently studies have claimed that getting the flu shot too early can be bad. And I’m not a medical provider, so talk to your doctor and find out if and when you should get the flu shot. And then follow his or her directions.
Again, I’m not a medical provider. And I’m not giving you medical advice.
But seriously, I had the flu in 2015, and I lost days of time because of it.
Time required: 2 hours, but that included travel time and an actual trip to the doctor for another purpose, too.
