It's That Time!

Can you feel it?  It's that time again.  Days are warm, but nights are crisp.  Leaves are turning colors in the canyons.  School bells ring and sniffles start.

Yeah, sniffles...

Coughs, colds, fevers, flu.


It's actually already here, making itself known.

It's still classified as "low activity," but it's not "minimal" or "absent."

And guess what?  Flu shots are here, too.

They're everywhere.  Doctor's offices, health departments, even your local pharmacy.  BYU is doing a flu shot clinic where they're handing out free t-shirts with the free flu shot this Friday.

I got mine when I went to Wal-mart to pick up some things earlier this week. It's easy, everyone can do it.


Soccer players...

Even Extremely Awesome people.

So just do it.  Yeah, I've heard some people say they feel under the weather afterwards, and one kid did complain that his arm hurt.  But really, for the vast majority of people, it's a minor annoyance.

However, for others, like kids with heart or other transplants, or cancer patients, you're their first line of defence.

And for kids like mine, if you're willing to do it, it can make the difference between this...

And this.

Or this.

Isn't he worth it?
