I am not allowed to take the flu shot because of my lupus my rheumatologist suggest I do not put that poison in my body when my immune system is already upset and fighting itself that it would only cause more problems for me I have been fairly lucky though and I don't get the flu very often because I do try to take care of myself

Not getting it again this year.  When I got it in the past I was so sick it is not worth it.  Was like having the flu and the doctor said that in the shot could be counteracting with other medications that I take for my RA.

I have never had a flu shot in ages,  30 years ,  why they calim to only be 9%  effective, if my car only worked 9% of the time it would n be in my drive way,  i feel the same about shots  for people , kids and animals , my dog gets rabies because she has to by law,  the rest are crap

I did it got it in  October. Hubby got his too. He works at the schools as a sub, and we both  work at the Ministry of Hope. Never know what is  going to be brought in  at both places. I also got penumionia  shot and  an allergy shot all at the same time.   I was a little droopy for a couple of days and  did not want any one to touch my arms as they swelled up and my rump  did also. But otherwise was ok. Just  felt like a ;in cushion for a  few days

I received my flu shot a few weeks ago. As painful as it was, it is very well worth it. I haven't gotten sick (knock on wood) ever since my job mandated the flu shot.

I don't get Flu Shots anymore. Every time I ever got one, I have always gotten the Flu. I am sick enough and I don't need to be any sicker. >:(

I have heard way too many horror stories about people getting flu shots to make me give in and get one.  I took them many years ago, but in the last few years, I have seemed to be that one or two percent of all people who get the negative side effects of any drug taken.  I've got an actual phobia of taking any new meds now, and will take my chances.  A good friend took the shingles shot and the flu shot at the same time and ended up in the emergency room. Another friend has had an extreme reaction to the shingles shot and has been weeks trying to recover.

I would not get one, but they're free for me and sometimes my insurance pays me to get one; plus I live with a person that has heart disease so I need to not get the flu and pass it on to someone with a compromised immune system.
