“Should I get the flu shot?”
Lots of people are still on the fence, wondering if they should get the flu shot. If you’ve ever uttered words to the effect of
“I’m not anti-vaccine! But, the flu shot…”
There’s something you should know. You might not consider yourself anti-vaccine, but a pinch of the anti-vaccine crowd’s propaganda has almost certainly made it’s way past your defenses. Certain vaccines have a specific set of rumours and myths around them and the flu vaccine is definitely one of them. The amount of misinformation I see, propagated by otherwise rational people, isn’t surprising when you see how hard anti-vaxxers work at getting their dangerous ideas spread all over the internet. So, it’s important to counter it where we can, I reckon.
