A 69-year-old Oakland County man died from the flu; it was announced Thursday. Click here to see the full story. 

I NEVER got a flu shot until a few years ago. Now, I HAVE to have one because my daughter just started preschool and will be bringing it home. Her doctor suggested we get them.

Sunday we went to 2 places that didn't have them for our age group. Then we hit the Walgreens on M-59 in Hartland and we were in and out of there quickly. The first place denied us, saying "they didn't have any for our age group."

The second place was just sketchy.

Would this man have lived with a flu shot?

I'll take my chances with the needle.
