Capitol Workers to get Flu

Capitol Workers to get Flu Shots

I heard about all Capitol Workers getting flu shots regardless of their age this morning on the radio.

I will be writing my Senators and Congress people later today, urging them not to get it if they are not high risk.

Why am I so pissed about this, well because it looks like I will not beable to get a flu shot this year. Due to the medication I am on for my arthritis, my immune system is compromised. Which means if there is a bug out there I'm not only getting it, it will take me twice as long to get rid of it. I also have Asthma, which means when I do get the flu I have a higher chance of it becoming Bronchitis or worse, not to mention what effect it will have on my heart problem (due to my arthritis).

Hopefully this "scare" will die down in November and I will beable to find a flu shot somewhere. But I do encourage you to write you Senators and Congresspeople and ask them not to take the flu shot unless they are in the high risk catagory.
