We feel strongly about letting our community know that when you get a flu vaccine, you help avoid the spread of flu, especially to those who could get complications from flu.
As a healthy person, I used to feel that I was ready to fight off infections with my regime of nutrients and fighting herbs. I got the flu injection when I worked in a hospital years ago and I accepted getting the flu injection in our training because us pharmacists needed to practice on each other. Then, I fully learned and understood how getting the flu injection myself helped those around me. In the past, I thought I would know to stay away if I were fighting the flu.
What I’ve learned is 80% of people who get the flu are asymptomatic. That means no symptoms. But you are contagious. So, I wouldn’t know to stay away from someone with a compromised immune system because I wouldn’t even know I was fighting the flu.
I still do all I can for myself and those around me (because I could be fighting off a cold or various other bugs) by washing my hands often, not touching my eyes, nose or mouth and I still have my nutrients/herbs for fighting what comes my way. But I also get the flu injection. And I encourage my friends and family to get it too.
Come on in to discuss any health questions with us.
All the best,
