I must have had the flu both times in my life I got the flu shot. Never have I been so sick. Never have had the flu shot since, and never have been that sick since.

I am a proud union member, and my union does protect me from the flu by offering free flu shots at several locations. Don’t hate unions just because we have decent wages and benefits.

I love the flu shot and union member statement. That is what Quickly is all about — not thanking someone for doing their job.
