A PSA from Susie the PreMed Student:

Fall is here and Winter is coming! It’s time to get vaccinated!

I just got back from the clinic, because I was getting my *drum rolls* FLU SHOT!

Yes, that’s right everyone it’s FLU SEASON. We’re all busy people with busy lives so don’t forget to get your influenza shot for the 2017/2018 Winter :) No one has time to get sick or to have their children fall ill. The elderly and children are especially vulnerable to influenza and their demographic groups are most likely to die from the contagious disease.

So, to those who are not allergic to vaccines :) let’s all do our part in our beautiful communities to strengthen our heard immunity!

If insurance and cost are issues please check online to view your areas nearest minute clinics, free clinics, and mobile flu shot vans! There should be sources on government and independent websites (please don’t forget to double check with the hospital various organizations claim they are being sponsored by #IMPORTANT).

College students: check with your campuses for information on free vaccinations for registered students. Parents: check with your child’s school. Also, your job may pay for your flu shot as well. It’s wise to check your company policies.

(quick side note i also received another one of my HPV shots today… get vaxxed. save your life, save A life. xoxo)

And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.
