Slice: Don’t Believe A T-Shirt

In a Slice blog post, Paul Turner writes: "So it turns out that when supermarket employees are wearing shirts emblazoned with “ASK ME ABOUT FLU SHOTS,” they mostly want to tell you about how you get a vaccination there at the store. They don't really want to be asked, 'If it had been available at the time, how effective would immunization have been against the robust strain of influenza that caused the 1917-18 pandemic?'"

DFO: I get a flu shot every year, as early as possible. I rarely get the flu in years that I get them early. I plan to get mine Friday. How about you?

Question: Do you get flu shots. Have you found them to be effective?
