I got the flu vaccine.
I got it because it doesn't really matter how early or how late in the season you get it - you just get it.
I got the flu vaccine. And it might not stop me from getting the flu. It didn't last year. And that’s okay.
I got the flu vaccine because while I may still catch it, it will reduce my chance for severe disease.

I first became aware of the unfortunate fact that some people were avoiding vaccines when I was pregnant with my twins. There was a good chance they would be premature, and my doctor warned me how vulnerable they would be if they were exposed to whooping cough, which was just on the rise at the time. It’s often a deadly disease to babies, so we had to make sure that everyone who would come in contact with them was up-to-date.
