  • No way, we never have and we never will - I'm in one of the "high risk groups" or whatever they call it and I still refuse.

  • No, we never have and never will. We have been (thank God) a very healthy family and there is rarely anyone sick, even with eight children. I don't know that I or our children have ever had the flu, even thought we don't get shots. I do recall that two years ago, my husband was extremely ill with what must have been the flu (terrible fever, chills, and body aches), and he had been given the flu shot at work for the first time ever, less than a week before. Neither I nor the children ever caught it from him, despite sharing a bed. He was so sick, that I was honestly worried that he would be hospitalized. Needless to say, he has declined the flu shot at work ever since. His bosses do not like that, but he tells them that he will not take that chance again.
