  • I got mine last year for the first time and didn't get the flu. I am going to the store tomarrow and they are giving flu shots so tomarrow I am sure I will get another one. My kids have a Dr appt tomarrow also and they are both getting a flu shot. I'm not sure if my husband is going to get one or not, but he might :)

  • I'm thinking about it. I'm not high risk and I've had the flu before, it wasn't THAT bad... so I don't know.

  • I don't get one. My husband is allergic to something in the shot and mist. I might get one for my daughters because my oldest one has asthma and the flu aggravates it. My youngest daughter is in kindergarten and this is her first year being around a lot of new germs. I don't know yet.

  • No. If you do get it, please research it first! You could be getting the 3-in-1 without knowing it.

  • Nope, not getting the regular flu or h1n1 shot...honestly, a shot is not gonna keep you from getting sick, just pray about it :)

  • Yes, my entire family gets it every year, especially after dealing with h1n1 last year!.
