flu shots?
i was just wondering how many of y'all usually get or are planning on getting flu shots?

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 or known anyone who's got one. every year though my mom's dad comes to thanksgiving dinner and complains about how the gov't didn't get him his flu shot. i don't expect this year will be any different. :drool:

I have gotten one every year since college (except last year because of the shortage).

never had one...I believe the body cares for itself:wink:

I'll get one this time, last year I got really sick.......

I agree with Dis....I refuse to get them and don't think they really help. I've heard more people actually get sick as a side effect from the shot itself....and it doesn't protect but from only certain strains. MY luck would be to get the shot and catch some godawful flu virus that the shot didn't cover. So no thanks, not for me.

My doctor makes me get one. I never have had any bad results from getting one. If I don't get one I get really sick. So for me it's a must.

My doctor also makes me get them - my immune system isn't so good, so I get them free on the NHS.

I don't think i have ever had the flu:shrug: bad colds yes but never the flu...guess i'm lucky.

i also have to get one each year because the drugs i take for my arthritis cause my immune system to be depressed. and, i have never had a reaction to them.

I never get one. We have them at work free since I'm a healthcare provider. I got one once before, and got the flu really bad that year not long after. Not worth it to me.

i got one a couple weeks ago :D

WildHoneyAlways 10-24-2005 06:32 PM

I never used to get sick. Then I became a teacher. The first year I was okay, then last year I was miserably sick for like, 2 months. :germybastardkids: (high school kids at that)

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. :shrug:

redkat 10-24-2005 06:40 PM

I seem to alternate from year to year. I get it when it's convenient or the media freaks me out enough to think I need it.

I get the flu every year either way :shrug:

It only immunizes you against one strain and since it keeps morphing as it's passed on...

If you have medical conditions or are elderly then absolutely you might as well do all you can to prevent the flu.

I've never gotten one and thankfully have never had the flu.

I'm sure I just jinxed myself now. :|
