I haven't gotten one in years. I got the flu two years ago, but I normally don't get it, I get some other damn bug.

I'm supposed to get one because I have asthma, but I haven't gotten one for about 6 years. They always make me sick.

I don't get one because I believe it is not necessary for individuals who are young and healthy. The elderly and the immunocompromised are another story alltogether.

The composition of the flu shot is a guess at best.

This year I got anti-viral kleenex, loads of hand sanitizer and a flu shot. We'll see how it goes. Since I got my flu shot I've been more tired than usual.
I was sluggish for about a day or two after I got my shot but this flu season is supposed to be epic in nastiness. We lost quite a few patients to it last year and expect the numbers to be even higher this year. Honestly the flu is not something you want to mess around with - we are all pretty young (anything under 80 is young to me) and healthy but those who aren't are very vunerable to being placed on a vent in hte ICU or even dying with the flu.

rant over

please get you flu shots if you can

I have my Tamiflu, thank you, already. Just a quick call to the doctor and an hour later my prescription was filled.

I'm as prepared as I can be,

I've had one each of the last three year, as my employer offered them for free at the office.

Now, with a merger, I expect they will not offer them. Something about meeting attrition goals, I suspect.

i've never gotten one. every year i debate if i should get the shot or not. so far i've been lucky and haven't had the flu since i was in college.
i've never got one although the doctor told me that it could be a good idea regarding the fact that i work with a lot of young people who are always sick

I've never got a flu shot ...
Although, I've gotten sick during the winter at one time or another, it's never been with the flu.
