Do not put your fingers in your nose

Get a pneumonia vaccination

There is no way to protect yourself from the disease

2. Why are senior citizens strongly advised to get the vaccination?

It will keep them out of the nursing home

Their resistance is weaker and thus most who die from the disease are over 65

A sore arm where the shot was given

A mild case of pneumonia

A reduced immune system
