Re: Get a flu shot yet?

I believe in 'em 100%. Got mine today. A little sore in the left shoulder, but I'm a happy guy.

You guys/gals get one each year too?

I dont believe in it.
Nor do I in 'anti-bacterial' stuff,
I firmly believe it'll just lead to mutated Nastier diseases!

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

I used to get one every year when I worked in the hospital. I haven't gotten one the past few years. I'm thinking about it.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

Never got one, even when I could get them for free at the hospital I worked at. *The people I've known that did it end up sick anyways. *I don't catch the flu every year so...

(edit: when I'm old I probably will get them, flu is different for old timers.)

Not into anti-bacterial soap either, but for a different reason. *I want my body's immune system exposed to that crap on a daily basis so it's working good.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

I just got over the flu.
It's been about 20 years since the last time I had the flu though so I usually don't get a flu shot.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

Have an apointment to have mine at end of the month. Could get it for free a bit earlier as I am over 65 yrs of age, BUT sitting with mase of old people & waiting in a line-up is not my thing so I will pay like the average person & have done this since '95 (& earlier when under 65) bar the one time & am sure I picked up a cold sitting amonst the crowd of older people for one plus hour.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

Never have, and never will. I know plenty of people that get sick with it. I get the flu once a season, and then I'm done

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

Got my first one last winter, even though I hadn't had the flu in about 6 years. *But, due to my seriously advanced age, I let the SO talk me into it. *Had no ill effects from the shot, and will probably get one this year also. *About all I have to do is recall just how miserable the flu makes one feel, and I'm all over the shot if it really works.

Edit: When I got the shot last year, I used the nurse's phone to call the SO at work and then had the nurse confirm that I had the shot and didn't cry.

You need to have the s/o pick up some vinegar...to keep the sugar ants away from your CANDY ASS!

For '05 I promised myself I would practice tolerance...so if people would quit being so STUPID I'll be more tolerant.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

You guys realise that the flu vaccene is based on the flu from last year? Being a virus, the flu mutates each year as it travels around the world. So the vaccene will only protect you from last (and previous) years versions but you are still succeptable to the current mutations. But because everyone gets the vaccene the old ones are pretty rare.

That's why I don't get a flu shot, plus I haven't had a bad flu for over 10 years, so there's no need for me.

Ben.

Re: Get a flu shot yet?

I very rarely get sick. The last flu shot I got was the sickest year I've ever had. Bad bronchitis, strep, cold half the year, I was miserable. Haven't been sick for over 3 years. No shot please, no thanks.
