I got a flu shot toward the end of September.  My job gave it to us for free.  My body resistance was low and I took sick with flu like symtoms:  chills, sore skin, sore throat, coughing, and sneezing.  However, I took some over the counter medicine, alka-selzter plus, for about a week.  I recovered.  When I was around other people on my job with the flu, five other people, I did not get the flu again.  I was glad that I received my flu shot.

I have never gotten a flu shot, but maybe I should start doing it.  I get sick every year around this time when the weather changes.  In fact I am going through that sickness right now...

I believe the formula has been changed, but when I got a flu shot in 1968 when I worked at a hospital, I broke out in terrible hives. The flu shots back then were made of chicken embryos, and I'm allergic to feathers! Not allergic to eggs though. Hmmm.

I have only gotten a flu shot once and I am not sure it did much good.  There have been years where I didn't get the shot and I didn't get the flu either.

I thought about getting the shot, but my sister got the shot and who ever did it didn't know how to use a needle. My sister had to go the the ER because she had an infection and got antibiotics.

I have never had a flu shot and am not planning to get one either. I wonder if the flu virus in the US is the same as the one in South Africa - if so, then I will be safe (she says, crossing her fingers)!

We have never received any, nor will we ever.  I don't believe in vaccines of any kind.  Because the immune system can be strengthened naturally with nutrition, plenty of clean water, the Essential 90 nutrients (look up Dr Joel Wallach of Dead Doctors Don't Lie fame).   I take 5,000 IU Vitamin D3 daily to help prevent the flu too.

Considering all the bad ingredients in the flu vaccines (and other vaccines), the KNOWN and REPORTED Adverse Reactions, I'd rather take a chance and get the flu naturally and then become immune to that strain the way nature intended to give us permanent immunity.





I have also heard of flu shots and vaccines having adverse and that it is better not to take them as well. I myself have no interest in flu shots or vaccines and haven't gotten any since I was in my teens.

It's been a while since I have gotten a cold, flu or anything so I am thankful for that. I really don't believe the vaccines protect people like is claimed and indeed can do more harm than good. Besides even if they did protect people, I don't have the money to spend on them anyway.

Eh, I finally got mine. My insurance covered it, otherwise I probably wouldn't have.

My first thought when seeing that flyer was, "Lol, already have ADHD. Not worried." I mean, obviously I don't want any of the other problems, but it's already been done, and I think I feel more comfortable getting the shot anyway.

I am a very skeptical questioner of society and the rulers of it... but I still get vaccinated.  ;D

I got one each year when I leave my family and go homeless, bc it is free. But, I felt no good, and make worse. My mom saves alot of flu relief, so I will be fine this year, not sure in next year, or next or next again, so far I will be fine. ;D
