We dont do flu shots.  They never seem to work.

Time for the great debate!  Get the shot or don't.  I do every year, without fail, AFTER having the actual flu.  The main reason some people think they don't work is a lack of understanding of what influenza really is.  I've heard people say "I got the shot and got sick anyway", but odds are they did not have influenza but rather some other virus.  It's not 100% effective but helps in most cases.

We don't do flu shots. If I won't put that shit in my body, it won't go in my Son's. Who knows what's REALLY in it. We haven't had the flu, either, and We strive to keep it that way. *still knocks on wood*

My brother nor I have ever gotten the flu shot and we have never had the flu. He is 32 and I am 26. My husband gets it every year and gets the flu every year. I went against my better judgement last year and got it for my oldest, he was sick for 2 weeks. No flu shots for myself or my kids!
