    Not anymore.
    The flu shot injured one of my arms.
    Another year, the flu shot gave me the real flu...
    and it was terrible!

I never get the flu shot. I have only had the flu twice in my whole life so far. My mom gets the flu shot every year and still gets the flu every year. I think I have been doing alright without it.

I have never had the shot or have had the flu but I have to get it this year because I am pregnant. My doc recommends it. I am still very ify about it though and am hoping it does not make me feel sick.

I have been getting the flu shot since about 2010.I got this year's shot last week.Usually I don't have any problems with the shot.This year I had a little soreness and itching at the injection site for a few days,but that's still better than the flu.

I usually tried to get flu shot at least once a year if I can.

When I have gotten the flu shot, I get quite sick.....when I get the pneumonia shot, I get bronchitis.

I am sooooo much healthier without the shots. Remember to fully research what they put in the shots, like "hair of the dog" etc.

I got a hepetitis shot years ago, as I helped work with some folks that had hepetitis.  It almost killed me.

Lots of folks get shingles after the shingles shot.  Not doing that.

I am a healthy person, in part because I avoid many of the pharmaceuticals prevention claims....remember they are out to make money.

I get the flu shot once a year usually when it comes out around mid-September.

A few people may have a reaction or allergy to the shot.  That is the way it is with many things.  I have had a flu shot each year for 16 years and only had a mild, 24 hour reaction once. I also have only gotten the flu once in those 16 years. The flu shot has several different strains in it every year but the virus is always modifying itself and changing so it an educated guess by the CDC which one will be prevalent in the general population.

Also, getting a flu shot is just not about you.  Another reason to immunize is about other people.  Those who are older or quite young or have compromised immune systems can easily get very sick if exposed.  You see that each year some people die from the flu and they even aren't always old, very young, or already compromised.

I'm required to get one for my job. I'll be getting one this Thursday. I've only once had a bad reaction to it, and that was just exhaustion. I say, it's better than getting the flu, right?
