One of my good friends from high school lost his girlfriend today. She was a wonderful young woman who had a lot of loving family and friends (me included). She died due to complications from an infection with H1N1. That's one of the most upsetting parts -- this horrible event could have been prevented. So here is my call to all of you:
Please, for yourself, your loved ones, for every other person out there, get your flu vaccine. It's cheap, accessible, and it saves lives. H1N1 can kill healthy young people; Jessica was only 22. This year's flu vaccine includes H1N1, and for those of you who can't handle needles, there is even a nasal spray version.
Please help prevent these terrible losses. Take care, TFers.
