I work with 13-18 year olds Monday-Friday 1pm to 9pm and when I started I was getting sick all the time. I started to wash my hands all the time and use hand sanitizer all the time. It helped but I would still get sick, so I got the flu shot because my father in law stays with us and it would help him if I was not getting sick. I did not get sick after the flu shot and I have gotten one ever since.
It takes no time and I do not see the side affects that people say they get such as fever, running nose and headaches. I did have a sore spot where the needle went in my arm but that was it.
So get the flu shot not only for yourself but for others too.
