Ajit gets a flu shot every year. As a front-line health-care worker, he’s regularly in contact with people who have the flu or who are at high risk of becoming ill.
Ajit believes he has a strong immune system, based on his experience as a nurse.
A shift as a nurse in the emergency department can be 10 to 12 hours long, and Ajit sees up to 200 patients a shift sometimes. Usually Ajit works two to three shifts a week, but he never says no to overtime.

On days between long shifts, Ajit needs to stretch his legs. Luckily there’s a good trail nearby where he can run. While he’s not really training for a marathon, maybe it’s something he’d like to do one day!
