Will you get the flu shot?

I just been looking at information about the flu. Have you gotten the flu shot in recent years? Will you get it this year?
I am wondering what your over all opinion of this is here.

  • Yes. We all do flu shots every year. Nobody in our house has been sick from a flu shot in over 15 yrs when they changed the formulations. Why do we get them. Because 2 of the 4 people in my house are high risk and immuno-compromised.

  • Nope I won't. I had the flu shot when I was younger and I remember getting really sick from it. All I will be doing to prevent getting the flu is your normal washing of the hands and keeping away from people I know are sick. If I end up getting the flu I'm not worried about it. As long as you aren't already dealing with a medical problem or put off getting treatment for too long, the flu isn't very deadly.

  • No, I don't want to add any more chemicals to my body than necessary. I take natural supplements that modulate my immune system and balance body ph so bacteria and viruses do not grow.  good handwashing is also a must

  • No. I've never had a flu shot and I've never gotten flu shots for my kids.
