I got the flu vaccine.
I got it because it doesn't really matter how early or how late in the season you get it - you just get it.
I got the flu vaccine. And it might not stop me from getting the flu. It didn't last year. And that’s okay.
I got the flu vaccine because while I may still catch it, it will reduce my chance for severe disease.
