I got the flu shot today

December 11, 2008

Flu shot always give me some muscle sore, but it is still better than getting the flu.

NPR did a story on the benefit of flu vaccination. Even if you are not concern with your health and the health of people around you, there is a financial gain in flu shots:

“Colleges now are typically between $15,000 and $25,000 a semester,” Doyle says. “If someone is sick for two weeks, you can gut the core of your semester. You can have to redo or dump your courses for that time period — and lose $25,000.”

But there is a cheap insurance policy against such a devastating loss: a $20 flu shot. Some colleges and universities offer them for free.

Maybe $25,000 is a bit extreme, but missing a week of productivity is definitely more than $20 for anyone. Besides, flu shot is completely free across Ontario.
