I was a healthy 40 year old who competed in obstacle course races and 5ks and such. Randomly found out in a blood test that I have an autoimmune issue and the flu (and later, covid) could send me to the hospital. I was never a flu vaccine person before, and to be honest, I did not know how serious the flu was before covid came along. I had no idea people die from the flu! So now I’m an annual flu shot, covid shot person.

I do hope you will continue to listen and protect yourself in the future. :)
