It’s easy to procrastinate getting your annual flu shot. If you didn’t get yours yet, ISC is making it soooo easy for you! Even if you already got yours, you certainly have friends who haven’t, maybe because they’re nervous, skeptical, or think they don’t need it. You need to bring them to this program where they can get all their questions answered, in person, by real science experts. You’ll be rewarded with a free drink as well for being a public health hero! Have a drink, learn the real deal about vaccines, then get your flu shot. Done! Get answers to these and all your vaccine questions: How are antibiotics different from vaccines and how do they work? Why does it have to be a shot and can’t be a pill? Why should I get a vaccine for something as mild as the flu? Can’t I get sick from a flu shot? I’m scared of a serious reaction. Why every year? Why not just one good one as a kid like chicken pox? Little babies can’t handle lots of shots because they’re delicate, right? Why are there vaccines for measles and flu but not Zika, Ebola, AIDS, or Herpes? Can’t I just change my diet to boost my immune system and not get sick? Your questions! IL Science Council’s Experts:     Susan Ross, PhD, Virologist, Professor at University of Illinois at Chicago     Steven Piecyk, Pharm.D., Pharmacy Manager, Jewel-Osco Pharmacy Doors open at 6:00pm; Program at 6:30pm.
