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.

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.
