So, what’s your hesitation? Not enough time? Hate getting a needle? Not sure where to get one? If you’ve used any of these an excuse to avoid the flu shot, I’d like to introduce you to Thomas.
Thomas is 7, he has a dog named Kodiak, he does judo, and he wants to be an electrician when he gets a little older.
Besides being a pretty cool kid, Thomas knows the flu shot is the best way to protect himself from the flu. What he didn’t know, but he learned this year, is that it also helps protect everybody else! Kids like him, babies, the elderly, and those with vulnerable immune systems are all impacted by him getting the shot!
"Just my arm was a little bit sore but that was ok because I got to be on the news."
Here’s what he had to say about the experience:
“I was a little nervous because I was afraid it would hurt a lot. But it didn’t hurt until after, and just my arm was a little bit sore but that was okay because I got to be on the news.”
Thomas is one tough kid!
