I'm supposed to get a flu shot every year (because I belong to a so-called medical 'risk-group'). But I haven't had the flu in years, and only get really really sick when I do get a shot. So, no flu shot for me.

Well Abel since I don't like being sick, I don't want a flu shot!! I can't even remember when I was last sick, so why bother!? And I don't like needles anyway. I'd really rather drink my water, eat chix soup, and drink hot tea w/ honey&lemon....works for me!!! Oh, and don't forget your proper 8 hours rest...all this a Doc will tell you!

I got my flu shot at work last week. No bad side effects except that my arm hurt for about a day or so (I had a nurse once tell me that my arm hurt so much because it had no muscle. Nice). I get the flu shot whenever I can becaue I don't want to be sick any more than normal (I have allergies that take me out of commission every once in a while). I didn't get a shot the year of the shortage, though, because I have three elderly grandparents and hated the thought of a healthier person taking away their dosage.

Haven't had one in years, haven't got flu in years.

I got one about 10 days ago. First time ever getting one. I hate shots, but I hate getting sick more. And do to an illness diagnosed earlier this year, I am more in a risk group like January Star. But it didn't hurt & I didn't experience any side effects

I got mine on Monday (work gave them out free this year). I've gotten one every year since college, except for the year they had the shortage.

Sometimes, I fell crappy the day after I get the shot, but not this year .

The shot stung like though .

The shot is no guarantee that you won't get the flu, because there are different strains, but it does greatly reduce you chances of getting it.

After getting the shot yesterday, my arm swelled like a softball.

But last year was the first year I didn't get it in ages and I ended up getting phenmonia. I think the flu shot also wards off other things to. I have never been that sick in my life!

Get mine tomorrow. Hopefully my rock hard arms won't break the needle.

Didn't have any problems other than a little soreness in the arm last year. Last year was the first year getting the flu shot, and since it's free, I'm gonna take advantage of it.

I got my flu shot last Tuesday because I'm around small children and I work as a food handler.

Only if your system kept the ID of that virus in your system....and even then you're still at risk

Got my shot today. I keep forgetting I had it done, so I'm whinning about my arm being sore. No one is listening to me though.
