Let's Talk Why To Get A Flu Shot
Let's Talk New Mexico 12/13 8a: Doctors recommend getting a flu shot in the fall, but it’s not too late. A record 80,000 people died in 2017 from the flu and the CDC recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months get vaccinated every year. Do you get the flu shot? Does it seem like you get sick anyway? Is it hard to find time or a place? We’ll explore myths about the flu vaccine and its effectiveness. We want to hear from you.
