Will you get the flu shot?
« on: December 29, 2018, 03:07:57 am »
On the news, they are saying that this should be taken soon because people are getting the flu. I think I may get mine today. It takes a while to take effect.

No I had a bad reaction once to the flu shot that lasted 8 months, so I am nervous to get another one.

I don't get the flu shot. I can count on one hand how many times I have been sick and there is no garantee that you will not get the flu if you get the shot. I have seen more people who get the shot end up getting the flu anyway year after year.

 My Grandfather was an very healthy and active senior when his doctor recommended a flu shot as a preventive measure after a few days of having the flu vaccine administered he was in the hospital with a serve flu. After a 3 week battle sadly my Grandfather passed away. I will never get a flu shot!

Hubby and I  both got one and get one every year. He is a sub. at school and I volunteer  at ta charity. So he is around a lot of kids that  do get them and I am around anywhere from 150 a day to only about 50 depending on  what day of the month that they come in.  Believe me they  bring all of their  snotty and sick kids in with them when they come in.  Then touch all of the groceries   they  get then I have to pack them.  I use  hand wipes,  Clorox wipes and hand  santizers  all day every day. But hat is still not enough . I get colds  but no  flu.

I haven't taken a flu shot since i was 20yrs. old. I never had a problem until I took it again & got the flu afterwards. I decided never again & have been fine since I've stopped.

Every Time I got the flu shot, I got sick for 3 days as if I had the flu.  The last time, a few years ago, it made me sick for 2 weeks.  Some of us can't take it.  It's like we have a bad allergy to it.

I have never got the flu shot because I have seen so many people get the shot and then they end of getting the Flu anyway.

I don't have insurance, so no. Could have used it this year since I'm getting over a bad cold.

I don't usually get the flu shot.  I've only gotten it a couple of times.  It's just not something I think about.
