A lot of the health care workers at the airport are sick and tired of waiting for someone else to get the shot.
And, as the flu season heats up, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking that we all get vaccinated.
It’s been a grueling, but necessary, journey for many workers who’ve been waiting for this shot, including one man who was just about to get a flu shot at a Seattle-area airport when a virus hit the United States and his wife and daughter got sick.
We’re all going to have to be more careful,” he said.
Airlines, hospitals and health departments are trying to make vaccination as easy as possible for everyone.
Some airports have already announced that their flights will be free for all passengers.
Health officials have said that flu shots can save lives. “
We’re not in the rush to vaccinate everyone, but we are encouraged by the trend of people not traveling as flu season gets closer,” said Andrew Kim, an infectious disease specialist at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Health officials have said that flu shots can save lives.
In a press release, the CDC noted that flu vaccines can be a lifesaver.
The vaccine is a strong, low-cost, non-surgical, noncontagious vaccine that can be administered in a hospital setting or by an individual at home.
It can be given at home, at the workplace or at home with a vaccine booster, such as a nasal spray or a shot taken with an injection.
Many travelers get their flu shots when they land in the U of S campus at UW-Madison in Madison, Wis.
Dr. Christopher Wurster, a public health professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said that in addition to helping the flu shot become available, the vaccines can also help people who get sick to be vaccinated sooner.
He said that many people who are sick are already receiving the flu vaccine and will be vaccinated as soon as possible.
Wurster also said that the flu vaccines, like the MMR vaccine, have been proven to be effective and that it’s a good idea to have a booster shot when you get sick.
“You want to get vaccinated if you’re sick and you have symptoms that you think are a sign of influenza,” he told NBC News.
