Flu Shot

"Did you get a flu shot?"

"No, that's not for me."

"The flu could be a bad thing for you-- I don't want to see you get sick if it could be avoided."

"No, last time I had the flu shot, I got the flu."

"Well, it's not 100%."

"No, the shot gave me the flu."

"I think you should really consider getting the shot."

"Doesn't work for people like me."

"What do you mean, people like you?"

"You know, people like me."

"I'm not sure what you mean."

"People who don't have the flu."

"Yeah, you don't have the flu now.  I'm worried you might get it."

"Why, do you have the flu?"


"So I'll be fine."

"But you're around other people aside from me."

"I'm sure I'll be fine."

"I still think you should really consider getting the shot."

"I heard you can die from it."

"I don't think you heard that."

"Well, I just don't want it."

"As you can see, I'm not forcing you to get it.  But I think you should.  You don't want to get the flu."

"I'm sure I'll be fine."

"I hope so."
