The changing seasons and approaching holidays bring a lot of anticipation.

Food!  Fun!  Family!  Flu shots?!

Are you going to get a flu shot this year?

Many have already gotten their flu shot.  More are still planning to get one.  Flu shots are not as hard to find as in some past years, but not everyone wants one.

A new study shows that flu shots may reduce the risk of heart disease and heart attacks.  Shots are also readily available in West Michigan.  Still, less than 50% of people get one.

Fear of shots and busy schedules are among the reasons given.
