  • We will not be getting it, just like we have chosen not to get it any year, the risks far outway the benifits.

  • I think it's really important to build up your own immunities to the virus. I've never had a flu shot and have maybe had it about 4 times in my entire life and I'm 26. My 4 and 9 year old daughters have never had it, never been vaccinated. What happens to a person who has been vaccinated every year for their entire lives and there is a shortage of vaccinations one year? The results could be deadly!

  • None of us have ever had a flu shot, and we won't.

  • I agree with Spawn_Love and believe in building up personal immunity. (Much to the dismay of friends and family, we don't even use sanitizer on our hands....). No flu shots for us, ever!
