Definitely get your flu shot. Those of us that do get the shot protect a lot of people (besides ourselves) who don’t get immunized through “herd immunity”.
The issue with Covid 19 is that it early on seems to be MORE contagious than this year’ flu. Couple that with a mortality rate that seems to be 2-3% as opposed to the 0.1% this year’s flu is exhibiting and the epidemiologists are rightly concerned. It comes down to algebra.
Don’t panic, but don’t give this virus a chance gain a foothold anywhere.
