  • hubby got the flu-mist nasal at his reserve unit, I got mine for free at the winn dixie, gonna take my daughter into her doctors for hers.
    I dont enjoy being sick with the flu....the shot doesnt make you sick unless you are allergic to the components in the shot....

  • No! We are a vaccine free home!

  • No one in our house gets them. Very rarely do we get anything because we take other natural precautions like eating a well balanced diet and gargling and performing saline nasal flushes daily.

  • Hubby and I haven't yet, 2 of our boys have, and both have pneumonia now. Our oldest son might get the shot, not sure yet... Our 2 younger boys have had an influenza test and it was negative for both, so we know the pneumonia isn't from the vaccine. Last yr none of us did and we were all sick at Christmas, and it was horrible. I plan to make our appointments as soon as our other 2 are feeling better, and we can get out to go to the Dr..

  • My 4 year old son gets it and since I work in healthcare, so do I.
