Just a warning to all of you out there. The flu is really scary this year. Both my 5 and 7 year old had the flu this winter as did I. It was extremely scary as a parent to nurse my children back to health. It took them both about 5 days each to get over the flu. I also had the flu and it took me a few days as well. They had fevers over 100 degrees for days and when I took them to the emergency room there were dozens of other children just as sick. I just want you all to be careful and to remember to wash and sanitize your hands as much as possible.
A question I have about this would be, since the flu vaccination is indeed a portion of the flu virus itself being inserted into people, in order to build up antibodies, what are your opinions on getting a vaccine? Should it be something that is mandatory? Do you think that if more people got a vaccine less would have gotten so sick? Do you think it would have made a difference?
I’d love to know!
