On television they are threatening people who don’t get flu shots. Perhaps we need to come up with alternative ways of keeping people healthy. At my age, I have never had a flu shot. As a child they wouldn’t give me one because I always had what they thought was a cold. Actually, it was allergies. Now it turns out I can’t have one because of an intolerance to eggs unless they are really fresh. The flu shot uses egg albumen. So not flu shot. I just have to stay healthy other ways. I try to get people who are sick to stay away, but that doesn’t always happen. But I cannot see how an employer can fire someone for not getting a flu shot. I know that many of us do not get sick days. I never have. I do, however, take time off when I am ill. I know better than to tough it out because with me it never works. So here I am, taking care of myself to overcome illness and hope for the best.
That having been said, I try to stay out of people’s way when I am ill and not transmit flu and viruses to others. I wish all would do the same, but I know many have to work sick or not. It is the way our society works.
