Nope. I usually don't bother - I think I've gotten a flu shot twice in the past 7 years.

Yep, I have to because of a couple medications I'm taking. It's not that bad, plus, I give myself a shot every other week, the flu shot is nothing compared to that.

I've never gotten some until last year and this year again.
My doctor said it was recomendable since having asthma and living in a large city is sort of a predispose for a flu, and especially with lung diseases you should be more cautious with colds and flus.

So far I've never had a real flu if I recall correctly, so I don't want to start with it now. Though I know that a flu shot is only immunizing you against one sort of flu, it's better than nothing, I guess. And it's free.

I've no problem with needles.

I think I got one once I really should, being in health care I don't mind needles either, I guess I'm just lazy

Normally I get the shot every year, because like Vincent I have asthma, and my doctor always recommended it. We used to get them free thru work.

This year we didn't get them. Funny thing is, I used to get horribly sick once every fall, and this year I haven't gotten sick at all yet. *knock on wood* Maybe not getting the flu shot was a good thing after all.
Insert something interesting here

I never did in the past, but I did have one last month, and will probably have to have them every year from now on because of an auto-immune illness. Shot didn't hurt, and no side effects. And I hate needles to Carlos, more than you know (I had blood taken today too)

Got mine on Tuesday. My company has given free flu shots for the last few years, so that's how I get mine.

And I probably need it, because A. I get the worst colds in the world, and B. I have a few health problems which make getting the flu shot a good idea.

No way !! I usually end up with a sinus respiratory infection or bronchitis during the colder months.

I never get the flu. (very lucky)
