A Reminder To Get Flu Shots

The arrival of the first bitter cold of the year should be a good reminder that it is flu season. Still, the CDC says even though they work well, the percentage of Americans who get flu shots every year is typically low.  Dr. Christopher Belcher with the Peyton Manning Children‘s Hospital says if you haven‘t gotten your flu shot yet, you shouldn‘t wait, even though many people avoid flu vaccines because of misconceptions, the primary one being that it can make you sick, but Belcher says you cannot get the flu from a flu shot.
