Fewer than half in USA get flu shots

Summary of link/story

Health officials announced that less than half of US citizens are being vaccinated.  Last year, only 46% of all Americans got a flu shot.  All anyone is worried about is the dangers of ebola while 200,000 people are hospitalized from the flu every year and on average 30,000 die.  Influenza vaccines are available to almost everyone.  This year, more than 150 million doses are available and no one should be deprived of their influenza vaccine.  Moral of the story, go get a flu shot!

The influenza vaccine is available to almost anyone who wants it in the US.  People can go practically anywhere to get a flu shot, but that doesn't mean that they have to.  Everyone has the right to chose whether or not they are going to get a flu vaccine and they have the right to decide for their children as well.  If they don't want to have one, they have the right not to get one.  Again, the flu vaccine has a very large range of availability, with more than 150 million doses this year.  There are plenty of vaccines to go around and everyone has the opportunity to be vaccinated if they choose to do so.
