I just now started getting the flu shot. I've heard some people get sick after the shot. My kiddos both have head colds and they both had the flu shot. Hope you get to feeling better!

I will not get it for my son or I, hmm I did for my son 1 time and he was very sick after never again. To be injected each year with the virus is not my cup of tea. Like a experiment each year they wonder who will get sick or who will have some symptoms or who gains a strong rejection.

I've never had one, but my sister had one last week, and she didn't seem to have any reactions to it.

I have a strong enough immune system that I have no need for it yet.  I'm sure there will come a time when I'm older when it will be to my advantage to get one, but for now, I feel it's better saved for those who are in greater need of the vaccine than I am.

I never get the flu shot.  They offer it for free at work and my doctor's office asks me when I go in if I want it, but I have heard so many stories about taking the shot and then getting the flu.

I received my annual flu shot...or flu mist (to be more technical). I prefer the mist because: (a) I despise needles and (b) I was told that the flu shot makes one more sick. Personally, I think one stands an equal chance of getting sick from both methods.

No i do not get the flu shot i just have never done it. I really don't like the idea of putting that into myself my body will build up its immunity against the flu by itself.

Yes we get a flu shot every year. My husband works at the school, so there children that bring it too school every year. Hubby would catch it right away with out the shots. The first year he subbed he caught it 3 times. Now he has not had the flu in six years. Of course if he caught it, I would get it. I believe in the shot or mist and it is not fair to send your child too school with the flu if he or she has it because you would not prevent it. And infect others.

I've gotten the flu shot for the last four years, mainly because my husband wants me to, as he gets one also.  I have never felt sick after getting it.
