no way.....nay nay. I saw a health show with moderator Doug Kaufmann. I also had the experience of getting a flu shot and likewise, getting the flu for a week. I don't want to put the flu strain into my body when it isn't there. Many people are wising up.

Every time I get a flu shot, I always get the flu that winter.  If I don't get one, I never get sick, so i just don't get them anymore.

No flu shot for me.  Not only do I not like to get shots but I am allergic to eggs & they say people who are allergic to eggs shouldn't get the shot.  I don't think it helps anyway.

yes good idea to get one reduces flu chances and in some age groups that is really needed.

I do get the flu shot every year.  I work in a group home and we are highly encouraged to get it.  It isn't required, but highly encouraged.

I've never had the flu, and I've only had the shot once in my life.  That time was at the nagging of my boss who just "would die" if I got the flu and had to miss much work.  She paid for it so I said "what the hell".  I did feel kinda yucky after the shot, though.  But can't say if it worked, cuz like I said, never had the flu, before or after the shot.

Not for me.  I prefer anti-viral herbs all year long...or...whenever I feel inspired to self prescribe.  :)

Lovely answer! Really it's the best way. All of the pharmaceuticals we use now are derived from some sort of natural ingredient. But don't get over-zealous!

I have pretty bad allergies and my doctor always suggest that I get one. I got one for maybe 5 years straight and everytime I got one I would get the flu or fever or something along those lines. Prior to that I may have had the flu once when I was a little boy. Since I stopped getting the flu shot I have not had any flu like symptoms. Maybe it works for some people but it just made things worse for me. :'(


That's funny, I haven't had a flu since High School, the last time I had a flu shot.....  :dontknow:

I get a flu shot every year...and my son too. We have never gotten sick from one. I think some people feel symptoms of some sort, but it's not really the flu. I know I have a very strong immune system so I di'nt think it affects me.

Yes most definitely would get a flu shot.
This year I did... and the reaction I had from it was crazy!!
My immune system is compromised from the meds I am on... so it is important for me to get one every year.

I have not gotten a flu shot and never intend to. However, from what I have seen, it doesn't seem to help most people. One lady I know took the flu shot and a couple years, she ended up in the hospital very sick. Listed with the flu shot are possible side effects of headache, fever, chills, etc. (I don't have the info in front of me). But the "side effects" are exactly what a flu is. I think it is just another way for pharmaceuticals to make money.

It is a little odd that, at least from the people I know who get the shot, I've seen more people get the flu than without the shot...
