No excuse for not getting flu shot

Every year, people come up with various excuses for why they shouldn’t get the flu shot. Dr. Robert Krauth, M.D., a Saint Thomas Health primary care physician specializing in pediatrics and family medicine, has heard his share. Saint Thomas Health is part of Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the U.S. “The excuses people use for not getting the flu shot are often based on incorrect medical information or myths, but I’ve seen the real-life health consequences that people suffer by not getting their yearly flu shot,” he said.
