  • I got the one they gave last October, which doesn't cover the swine flu. I am glad I got it. I didn't get flu, and I didn't even get a cold, and I work around lots of people, so this is a very good thing.

  • I didn't get one this year against many recommendations to get one. I have really bad asthma, but I have been doing tons of research and they aren't a good thing. They don't necessarily protect against the worst strains any way. My dd didn't get one this year and she will never get one.

  • NO...never. I ended up with the flu from the shot that my sil got. She gave it to me. Made me so mad, I vowed to never get it. I am healthy enough that I dont need it and so are my kids. Its unnecessary to us.

  • Not myself. My both children got once back in few years ago. No reaction from it. Yet, i didn't have them have the flu shots ever since and they are fine without one so far so good.
