Get a flu shot

40,000 people die every year of pneumonia and influenza in the United States.  Often bacterial  pneumonia complicates influenza.  The outcomes of both of these infections improve if you are vaccinated.  There are pneumonia and influenza vaccines available at your doctor’s office and pharmacies.  There are screening questions to ensure you don’t have a contraindication and shouldn’t get the vaccine.  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm
