You Might Hold a Baby
Babies under 6 months can't get the flu shot, yet they are way more susceptible to influenza than you are. Plus, infants and toddlers are more likely than adults to be hospitalized or even die from the flu. Even if you don't have a baby, one of your siblings, friends, or neighbors probably does. Chances are pretty good that, at some point this fall or winter, you'll spend time with the kid — you may even have to play dad for a minute while your sister digs through the diaper bag. Don't put the little guy or girl at risk. Get vaccinated.
