never had a flu shot, never had the flu
No flu, did get the shot, as well as a pneumonia shot at the request of my Dr.
my story and I did get the flu shot.
I travel a lot. Got the shot. Picked up a cold- got over it. Then got the flu a month later.
No flu, but I did get a case of paranoia from looking in my mirror and seeing a police car...
Since I turned 60 I took a flu shot - never had the flu since (well, actually not for several decades).
No flu shot and no flu this year although we did have norovirus rampage through the house a month ago. That sucked.
There is hype about the flu every year lately. It's a sales tactic.
I can up the ante on the poll. Never had a flu shot and never had the flu. Handwashing is working for me, especially before eating.
The Dr. and my wife say I need the flu shot so I've gotten one every year for the last 10 years or so. Haven't had the flu in quite awhile so I guess I'll continue the practice.
I have had the flu in the past, including the Hong Kong flu years ago. If you get the bug, no amount of hand washing will help. Of course it's important to keep your hands clean and out of your eyes, mouth and nose.
I did get an ugly head cold that I'm finally coming out of, knocked me out. Bad headaches, I can still feel the remnants of one now and it's been a couple weeks.
My flu shot was free, but if you want to assume Public Health has some nefarious plans
Got my first flu shot ever this year out of fear. The fear of getting the flu finally passed up my fear of needles. I did not get sick this year, and hope it stays that way. I got it really bad two years ago.
Got the shot and haven't gotten the flu (don't want to jinx myself) but the flu season is not over yet. Time will tell.
More importantly, I try to keep up with my Vitamin C (naturally thru citrus fruits and via tablets) and have yet to have the common cold for more than a 24 hour period.
I got a flu shot in October.
My 2-year-old daughter was sick with a fever starting last Friday. She's in daycare 2 days a week, so she gets everything. She also had a flu shot. It seemed like a severe cold, but her fever kept coming back and she was just miserable. On Tuesday night I got a headache and suddenly felt very fatigued. I went to bed and woke up with body aches, a 100-degree fever, and swollen glands. Still feel awful. Can't say for sure it's the flu because I haven't been to a doctor, but the last time I had a confirmed case of the flu, it was very similar. I don't recall a cold ever knocking me on my ass this bad.
I got the flu shot in November when I was getting my yearly physical - followed in the next 5 minutes by a tetanus shot and a shot of shingles vaccine. The next day my body didn't know what was going on: "what is all that crap you just put into me?" Felt weird for a few hours but I smoothed right out and haven't been sick all winter so far.
I haven't gotten any flu since the mid 90s.
The best way to aviod infectious disease is to avoid other people.
If you take public transit, for example, and there are people coughing and sneezing all around you, there ain't a whole lot you can do. At that point it's up to your immune system.
Have not had a flu or cold in the last 4 years never ever would get a flu shot.
I hear you. I would never take the shot either, it's probably the one thing where all the conspiracies and such seem plausible to me.
