Why press your luck?

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

The Chiefland Citizen is very generous to its employees.

This year the company offered to not only pay for flu shots for the staff, but even had a nurse come on site to administer the vaccine in the middle of the workday so there could be no excuses about inability to get one.

The sign up sheet was posted for over a month and daily I watched name after name queue on it.

Mine was not added and a couple co-workers asked why I hadn't signed up.

I met their inquiries with a shrug and a quick change of subject and moved on.

Repeatedly over the course of several weeks, I was asked by any number of co-workers why my name wasn't on the list.

"The jury's still out," I tried to placate.

Two days before the scheduled vaccination clinic, information/consent sheets were handed out.

As I explained I had decided to opt out, she said, "Well, read this in case you change your mind."

That afternoon I read every word, mulled over the risks and benefits and by the time THE day arrived, I knew what I had to do.

I opted out.

Co-workers were incredulous.
