Throughout the month a lot of people have been getting quite sick and the whole reason  is because it’s that time of the season again. I know what  your thinking; the fun type of season when we get presents, but really it’s the season of cold, rain, and FLU.

Throughout the week I went to some of the students wandering the halls of the school for a couple questions. First I asked Stephani Cisneros (6)  if she had ever had the flu and surprisingly she said “no”, Then I had to ask how she didn’t have the flu at all in her life and she responded in 2 words, “flu shots.”

Next we went to Hannah Aelvoet(7) and Christiana County(7) and asked if they were getting a flu shot this year since the flu has been spreading. Hannah said that she gets one every year to prevent getting sick. And Christiana said she is also getting a flu shot.

I have had the flu about 5 times (and I am not joking). I am severely afraid of shots, so I just get the nasal spray, which isn’t as painful.

  1. Eat health, drink water and wash your hands frequently and if possible take vitamins. All of these can help keep the flu away too.

  2. I hate getting sick! It’s the only downside of this wonderful season! I also hate getting shots but I suck it up and just get it over with most of the time!

  3. That’s true this is the season of FLU(unfortunately).Luckily we have FLU shots to prevent them and we have awesome doctors that can give us medicine to cure it!Let’s prevent the FLU and just go get the FLU shot it only takes effort and a couple of minutes!=)
