I got my shot in September of last year. It was given free at CVS. I’ve read enough on legitimate websites to convince me to get the shot. Every year a lot of people will get the flu and some will show up at hospitals and doctor offices wanting to be tested for Covid-19. I don’t want to be in that group if I can help it. The flu shot doesn’t help your resistance to Covid-19. Fewer folks with the flu this year means more effective Covid-19 testing.
I will also not buy a mask. The surgeon general says it doesn’t help keep you from getting Covid-19. Sure, doctors, nurses and dentist use them. But they are in intimate contact with a lot of ill people.
I will travel outside the US. Travel to me is one of life’s pleasures. Fortunately, cruises have never been a part of my plan.
