I'm still undecided.

  • Yes, unfortunately I got one thinking it was like the one I got last year. NOT!!! I got the shot on a Thursday and was so sick I couldn't get out of bed the next day or for the entire weekend. Which meant I couldn't take my kids trick or treating because I was too sick. It sucked and I don't care what anyone says, I was fine before the shot and went completely downhill within 12 hours :( As far as I'm concerned I will NEVER get the shot again!!!! I know everyone is different, but my husband has always refused the shot and has never gotten the flu as long as I've known him. GL

  • We don't get the flu shot ever. We don't get sick either.

  • My midwife said that the strain of flu this year isn't affecting the lower lungs, like flus in past years. As it's not a bad year for flu, and I've never had a shot before, I'm not going to start this year...

  • I haven't, I am terrified of needles so I won't get the shot.

  • My son and I both have. We get one every year. We both have asthma and getting the flu is not so good for people with respiratory problems.

  • I did, it doesn't hurt and takes less than 10sec and I'm done. I never really take any flu shots before, but since i'm pregnant doc suggest I take it. It's not bad no reaction to it whatsoever
