I do not give a shit what your reason for not getting it is, barring reactions.

I got the flu type A on sunday and let me tell you, this is by far the worst thing I've ever experienced, and I've had pnuemonia twice.

It's no "I feel a little run down". It's more of I got hit by a truck repeatedly. My skin hurts, my joints hurt, my kidneys and lungs hurt, my joints are swollen, my lungs burn so badly. It's horrible and I've had pnuemonia twice. I didn't think anything by could top that pain.

So sorry. I get the flu shot every year and got the first pneumonia vaccine last year (asthmatic). I haven't had the flu as an adult and hope to keep building my immunity.

With all my allergy, ezcema, and asthma issues, I rarely get sick.

Hope you feel better soon!

No. 7 kids and myself are flu poison free and have yet to get the flue going on 11 years. You keep your fake vaccines to yourself.

We don’t immunize when the effective level is so low as it is with the flu vaccine....

Oh I said the same thing my entire life. Haven't gotten the flu shot as an adult at all. Truly regretting that decision right now. Not only is the flu horrid, but tamiflu takes it, and makes you feel 10000x worse.

You make whatever decision you want but I will never risk it again. Think kidney pain is toooooo much

At only 17% effectiveness, you would have probably gotten sick anyway.

Just so you know....3 people I know who got the flu shot still got the flu and the shot did nothing for them. What's the point?
