Amanda: A lot of people in my office and at my children's school have been getting sick. I've been trying to keep my family well, but I'm not sure whether or not I should get them a flu shot. What do you think?

Just as we were saying good-bye to those hot summer days and welcoming in some much needed temperature relief, we got smacked in the face with one of the other lovely things that come with the changing seasons - the flu.

    It's sad that we need to consult with our doctor to see if the flu shot is right for us, but we go to a pharmacy to get the shot-and how are these people qualified to give shots? We should be getting shots at a doctor's office. I use to get the flu shot from my employer in their health clinic for $3.00 (two years ago), and it was administered by an RN. Now the shots are advertised at $25 or $30 per shot and who knows if the person giving the shot is qualified to do so.
