Hi,
No, I have never gotten a flu shot.  I have had drug reactions in the past.  I have to be careful.

Yes, it's better to be safe than sorry later when you really get sick.

No, I never get flu shots anymore.  I used anti-viral herbs like garlic, yarrow and turmeric.    :heart:
Have a great day!

I feel like flu shots don't even work. Either way, I'll still get sick eventually anyways.

I've never had the flu shot, don't plan on getting it for myself or my kids.  We've been blessed enough to not get sick. I think if they are bundled up good and maintain clean hands and avoid coughing classmates (trickiest thing to do) they will be fine.

That's true; my kids' pediatrician seems to get a little frustrated every year when I turn the flu shot down. But it's my choice, and I didn't like what I read when I did the research on it. Plus, I'm not big for putting chemicals in my kids unless absolutely necessary.

I've taken one flu shot in my lifetime several years ago and I never get the flu.  My husband takes the shot every year and comes down with the flu at least once during flu season.
I have never gotten a flu shot but i am considering the consequences of getting one and not getting one.  I know all health professionals seem to recommend them.

Me and my partner had a flu shots last month. But not my daughter. I`m kind of doubtful of getting her a flu shots too.

Despite the fact the flu shot is not 100% effective it is still more effective than the immune system on its own.  I have been sick once after getting the flu shot but was sick several times before I started having flu shots 10+ years ago.  I will take the 1 in 10 chance of getting sick even with a flu shot over the 30%+ chance that happened before the flu shot.
