10. Protect Others
If you get sick, it’s not just you who suffers. Aside from the fact that you won’t be able to help care for your family, you also put them all at risk by exposing them to your germs. Influenza is an airborne virus and you can be contagious before you start feeling sick. If none of the other reasons for getting a flu shot convince you, consider that you could be putting your loved ones, coworkers and anyone who is immunocompromised at risk.
