Assets in Action: 'Tis the season for the flu

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Ahh, it is that time of year again, time for my annual germ column.
No, I didn’t go back to find what I wrote last year, but usually around this time, I attempt to write something about germs.
For those of you that haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, please do so, as we still have a long way to go. I hear many people say, “well I never get a flu shot and I have never gotten the flu.” My answer to that is, your fortune is due to the 97 percent of people around you that probably do get it — and that is why you are healthy.
If I had the time to investigate it, I would research the number of shots given out in our community through various resources. Blue Cross Blue Shield providing flu shots at our local Smith’s grocery was such a great resource to the community.
While I’m pretty sure that we still don’t have a local public health nurse, probably going on the third or fourth month, I’m sure arrangements can be made with them.
I used to babysit for a doctor and she said she picked me because she knew I would spray the handle of the grocery store cart with Lysol before putting my baby in it. You only have to see a baby suck on that one time to actually feel your skin crawl. My advice — unless you really have to take them to the store — don’t do it!
