Our iPhones, social media and laptops give us a sense of connection, but theres nothing like an infectious disease such as the flu to understand what going viral really means. Our connection also means we share a responsibility to one another to not put others in harms way only to avoid inconvenience or discomfort.
In 2019, the least you can do to be a good neighbor is get a flu vaccine.
The flu is often thought of as a bad cold, and for many young, strong, and healthy individuals that might be the case. But the influenza virus can be extremely harmful and even deadly to people who dont have a strong immune system, such as the elderly, infants, cancer patients and others who are immune suppressed.
