Will your family be getting the flu shot? Yes or no? Why? Why not?

Sorry if this is a repeat post.

 Yes we just did. I work with very young children and Dr recommended it.

Yes we will all get one.  DH is diabetic and I had open heart surgery so our doctors insist we get it.  Our insurance plan offers them for no charge/co-pay.

I usually do not get my girls their flu shots bc they were really sick after one 2 yrs ago. I am thinking about it this year. The girls and I all 3 need one.

DH does because of his job and insists the kids do too because he can carry some nasty bugs home. I dont because of an allergy.

Yes, dh and I will be getting flu shots and our dd that still lives at home will also be getting one.  We get one every year; none of us have ever had a problem with it.  As for the other 4 kids, I have no real idea if they get them or not for sure.  I am pretty sure our oldest son & his family get them, as well as our oldest dd & her family I think.

Yes, for the health of those with lower immune systems.

Nope.  I'm allergic to both the shot and the nasal mist.  Found out the second time I went to the ER over it that I am allergic to a preservative they use.

Yes, we both will. I need it for school for the degree I'm seeking and DH is getting it because he's around my dad a lot and my dad is on oxygen for heart condition (my dad also has to have the flu shot, required by insurance).

Nope. Most times it actually gives you the flu. I'd rather we all took our chances than purposefully getting sick.
