Nobody in my home (myself, SO, dd11, dd2) has ever had a flu shot. Only one of us has ever had the flu and it only happened once. It was dd11. She had it when she was 7.

No one in my household has ever had the flu shot and never had the flu.

 I'd love to say we've never had the flu, but we have. We don't do the shot though.

Did not get the shot, due to no insurance and no extra money.  I got the flu, ended up in the ER (they did the test and was positive for the flu), but not hospitalized.  Took me a week before I felt like doing anything, and about a month before all the symptoms were gone.

Hubby and daughter both have insurance, both got the shot, and neither one got the flu. (Hubby on Medicare, daughter on Medicaid, income too high for me to get on Medicaid)

DD and DH get the flu shot and I dont.  Dh and I have not had the flu in 3 years.  DD hasn't had it this year, yet....

Just an FYI I took my son to the er and he tested positive for influenza B which is not covered in this years flu shot per the doctor. We didn't get the shot and both myself and ds have had it this year.

I don't believe in the flu vaccination, supposedly my youngest tested positive for it last week but I think it's a crock of shit because it's nothing more than a head cold.
