Would you prefer to take a vacation or spend a few days or more in the hospital? Would you rather enjoy time with friends and family or end up at home in bed sick? If you want to avoid a hospital stay and stay healthy, be sure that you get your flu shot every fall. Here are some facts about flu shots:
· The flu shot will not cause the flu
· You are less likely to get seriously ill with the flu, if you get the flu shot
· It is recommended for all people with diabetes over the age of 6 months
· It is not too late to get vaccinated.
Check with your health care provider and stop at a local pharmacy to get your flu shot today, if you did not yet get one this winter. More details about diabetes and the flu can be found at this link. http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/managing/flu/index.html
