  • I got the flu shot as a college student - but it has been 12 years since that! I don't think I will get one this year. I may change my mind, but I doubt it!

  • As a cancer survivor my doctor wants me to get one every year, as well as the pneumonia shot. I'm not sure yet if he's going to recommend the swine flu vaccine, but they can just keep that one, IMO. I believe it's too soon to trust it and it needs to be tested more.

  • We do not get the flu shot so we will not be getting the swing flu shot either. It is pointless.

  • I don't know. I will ask my doctor. I did get the pneumonia vaccination in MAy. But everyone should ask their Doctors about the Flu shot, and don't listen to Moms here. LOL. It seems there is a cult of Moms who think Swine Flu shot are a conpiracy to make the citizens of the USA sick. @@ Seriously---don't aks Cafe Moms. Ask your Doctor.

  • Anon - The swine flu is no more deadly than the regular flu. The stats speak to that. It is just another version of the flu. People are freaking out about it because of the media.

  • well, most doctors are in the conspiracy to give you what ever they can put into you to keep their jobs circulating.....there are so few good doctors in this world. as for me, i dont think i will get the swine flu shot, its NOT 100% safe...........yet anyway.......holistic and naturopathic doctors are better in my opinion, choose wisely..
