Question Mark Catastrophe #1

It appears that apostrophes aren't the only form of punctuation that grocery stores screw up. Here's an odd choice for the end of this friendly reminder:

How noncommittal of them. Maybe it was written by one of those uptalkers who makes everything sound like a question.

Maybe this one started as "Forget your flu shot?", then they added the don't and forgot to subtract the question mark.

It could have been worse, they could have subtracted the question mark without adding the don't. Then it would read:

"Forget Your Flu Shot"

Can you explain me that word, please?
