It's that TIME again...the time some folks DREAD, while others decide to igNORE. Of course, I'm talking about the time to get our flu shots. Joining lifewatch today was a person who knows every excuse there is for NOT getting vaccinated; she's heard 'em ALL. But Sharon Goforth ALSO knows the price that sometimes accompanies that decision-for more information call your local health department.
