Flu shot and Diabetes
I am diabetic taking insulin. Yes, I have gotten my shot along with my wife who is a cancer survivor. We are both 78 years old. Thank you

@evansjim Good for you both for getting your flu shot. I am a Type 2 diabetic so whether 1 or 2, we need to do what we can to keep from having the flu. My husband has heart disease so the flu shot is a must for him too. I am 75; my husband is 78. We try to take precautions with whatever will help. We also had the pneumonia shot last year too. Hopefully, if we are as proactive as we can be, we will stay well. Congratulations to your wife as a cancer survivor; it's wonderful to hear that from people who have fought the battle and won.
