Do you get a flu shot? Why or why not?
« on: November 09, 2017, 06:18:49 pm »
It's that time of the year that people start getting sick with the flu...do you try to prevent that from happening by getting a flu shot?  Why or why not?

I would never get one on my own, but my insurance company bugs me until I do. And it doesn't cost me anything, so I do.

I used to get them because I was married to a person with heart disease, If I had gotten the flu and he caught it from me, it would be majorly bad.

Later on I had to get a flu shot where I worked because it was a nursing school and they required it of all employees. That didn't cost me anything either. So I did it.

I'm pretty sure they're not really necessary since they only protect from a small number of the viruses that are out there.

My problem now is that I'm told I should have one because of my age which will go unmentioned.  :angel11:

I have pros and cons about the flu shot but it's getting so bad that if I had insurance I would get it this year.

Not anymore. I use to but I would always get the flu. My allergist would always encourage me to do so because of how bad my allergies are.

I am mandated by my employer to receive a flu shot on a yearly basis. I actually do not have a problem with it. I haven't been sick in quite a while (and I'd like to keep it that way, LOL).

No, never had and never will, they aren't for everyone, makes a person sicker.

I won't get one because the one year I did, I got so sick with the flu, I almost died. I'm not ready to go and when I am, I certainly don't need any help from a flu shot.
