It is flu season which means it is flu shot season.
I never used to get a flu shot until I was persuaded by Kara Sundlun and Denise D’Ascenzo to do it. My argument was I never got the flu and I cry when I see a needle. Okay, so the latter part is a little untrue, but I just never felt I need to get the vaccine. Kara and Denise would get the shots every year, and when I became a dad, our pediatrician told me I needed to get a flu shot to protect our children. Enough said, I’ve been getting a flu shot every fall since then.
Kara, Governor Lamont and I got all gotflu shots this week, and posted it on social media to get the word out. As the governor said at Maloney High School in Meriden as he got a shot, “it’s more important than ever to keep your immune system strong.”
