    Good god, no. The one year I got the flu was the one year I got the flu shot. If I’m going to get sick anyway, I’d rather not go through the agony of dealing with a needle, too. So, I stick by my decision not to get stuck.

    yay, poor granny there…

    No thank you! Same thing happened here. I take the flu shot, I get sick! I will take my chances!

    I got the shot when I was in the hospital. Normally I don’t get it but being so sick this year with the respiratory crap, the doc suggested I get it so I did.

    Without getting really into it, you do know that the “flu” you get aren’t the “flu’s” that you’re being given the shot for don’t you? The viruses in the flu shot are killed (inactivated), so you cannot get the flu from a flu shot. http://www.cdc.gov/FLU/about/qa/flushot.htm

      That was probably a good idea Joy. Glad to hear you got the shot this year.

      No, I didn’t know that. The link is great reading and thanks for sharing!! 😀

    IS IT A PREVENTIVE AND COMPULSORY ONE THESE ARE NOT COMPULSORY . I HAVENT HAD ANY PREVENTIVE SHOTS SAY FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS . I CROSS THE BRIDGE WHEN I COME TO IT. I HAD CROSSED A FEW BRIDGES TO CROSS ON THE WAY.

    I might get the shot if I happen to be at work the day the nurse lady comes around, but at the rate it’s going we’re never going to see a flu shot let alone get one! I got the flu shot twice and both years I had multiple colds one right after another. No flu shot and I get one cold a winter. I know they say you can’t get the flu from the flu shot, but I’ve never had as many colds as I did those years so…I can put two and two together 😉

    Never have done. Doubt I’ll change that.

    I got one only because I was at a doctor’s appointment and they offered. I’d never had one before. Later, I read some studies about the flu shot and wished I hadn’t gotten it. Nasty stuff in those vaccinations.

    I didn’t b/c the clinic we go to was low but Bailey did.
