Get a flu shot
To the editor:
I found the recent article concerning flu shots and the 1918 influenza epidemic quite thought provoking.
I find it mind-boggling that there are people, who still refuse to get the flu shot. What’s even worse, is that there are so-called parents, who claim they love their children, but refuse to get them vaccinated. They offer religious reasons and other idiotic nonsense as an excuse.
I had two aunts who died at 3 and 5 years of age due to the influenza epidemic. Although I never met them, I have a picture of both of them, lying together in a casket. Is that how you want to remember your loved ones?
