I am just curious. I have never had the flu. I never get the flu shot because I am allergic to it. I was curious how many other people are immune.

I picked other, because i have never had the flu dianosed. So i guess i wouldnt know.

The only year i ever got it is th year my dad was in the hospital dying. My views of the vaccine meant nothing.

You're not immune. You're lucky. It is physiologically impossible to have acquired specific immunity to anything without having been exposed. If you've neither had a shot nor had the flu, you are not immune.

Quoting OneToughMami:

I had the flu twice before.

Both of those times it was mandatory that I had the flu shot. I never had it when I didn't get the shot.

I have had it twice that I remember. The second time was two years ago. I had strep and the flu. It was miserable.

I am almost 50 so yes, I have had the flu. I do get the shot every year and I think it keeps it at bay or lessens the symptoms. I will keep getting the shot. I do not believe that you can get the flu from the shot also therefore I chose .....peaches are ike cats hehehe

I never got the flu shot until I got the flu for the first time, 3 or 4 years ago. It was horrible so now I get the shot.

I've gotten the flu when I didn't get the shot. I've never gotten the flu when I did get the shot

I don't even want to say this because  am sure it will jinx me into getting it, like, tomorrow... but I have never had a flu shot or the flu (that I can remember, I don't know if I had it as a child) and my children are 7y, 5y and 10 months have never had flu shot or the flu. KNOCK ON WOOOOOODDD
