Will someone persuade me one way or the other? I don't want to get sick, but I hear the shot makes you sick anyway lol. Someone tell me what to do. Thanks.
I agree with aeneva 100%. My Mom got the flu shot last year & ended up bedridden for 3 days. She has no medical issues & was in great health prior to the shot. So, while she may not have gotten the flu from the shot, it DID weaken her immune system enough for something else to invade. I am just getting over the flu now. I never ever got the flu shot. I had a fever for 3 days & felt like crap, still have a gagging cough but I got over it while caring for two small children & lack of sleep. So my opinion is that unless you are immune compromised in any way it's not necessary. If you are unable to stay home from work about 2 days then get it. The only thing they do say to watch for is if you do get the flu & finally feel better with no fever then suddenly the fever comes back you probably have a secondary infection & should see a Dr. ASAP as it could turn into pneumonia.

I get the flu shot every year. So far I have not gotten the flu. When I got mine. On Post at a Military Clinic. They inform you that it take up to two weeks for the shot to take effect. So if you get the flu within this two week period. The flu shot did not give it to you. You got the flu from someone.
Their is at least 2 types of flu that is going around, the Norovirus, it is the intestinal one. And the regular flu.
