Because it is an excellent safety precaution that saves lives and keeps insurance costs down, North Carolina Commissioner of Insurance Wayne Goodwin this past week received both his seasonal flu vaccine and also the H1N1 vaccine.
"Stay healthy, protect yourself and your family, and fight the flu before you get it," said Goodwin.
He also urged kids and adults alike to wash hands very frequently and thoroughly, to keep your hands away from your eyes and nose, and to sneeze into the bend of one's arm or otherwise cover one's mouth.
"It doesn't take a shot in the arm - in my case, one in each arm - to know how important it is to protect your health."
