  • I will be, my daughter has a weak immune system with other health problems so the flu could be deadly to her...while I can keep her sheltered from other people as much as possible i still have to go into public. I have recieved the shot before and never had a problem with it but my husband gets the mist every year as a requirement through work and he gets sick from that and my son got the mist for the first time last year and also got sick but has never gotten sick from the shot since it is not a live virus.

  • I am the same as MissAlisabeth. Every year that I get a flu shot I get sick so I will not be getting a flu shot this year. In fact every year my kids get flu shots they get sick as well so they will also not be gettting flu shots!

  • this will be mine and my childs first flu shot...last year she ended up with h1n1 and it was bad!!! i would rather her get her flu shot then to get that sick again. the flu shot is not a live vaccine. so how can u get sick from it? it just builds ur immune system up to not getting it!.thank to u all

  • Nope ... I've gotten one before and I was sick as a dog as well. Never again.

  • Yup, I have a 13 month old and a 2 week old baby, so I will totally be getting it this year.
