    Never had it. Maybe I should come off this mountain to visit town and see if I can pick one up, so I'll know what everyone is afraid of.:twisted:

    Got my shot in October.
    The flu kicked my arse two years ago.
    I was out of commission for 6 weeks.
    I don’t want to repeat that ever again.
    I won’t forget to get my shot from here on out!

    Sounds like a good time to buy stocks in whoever is making flu vaccines.

    We get our flu shots every year.
    It's cheap insurance.
    I interact with 1,000+ people weekly selling my stuff at farmers markets.
    Handling money, shaking hands, hugging necks, etc...
    Chances are I invariably will be exposed and I don't want the flu, nor do I want to bring it home.

    I got my first flu shot ever, in September. I think I'll continue getting one every year.

    Didn't get the shot this year.

    Got the flu instead.

    It's been three weeks, and I'm still mostly out of it. Antibiotics, steroids, codeine, Albuterol, they've got me on everything and it's still kicking my butt.

    Get the shot.

    Indeed - the 'Spanish Flu' of 1918-1920 infected about 500 million people and killed between 50 and 100 million people... i.e. 3-5% of the world's population. 'Tis deepely unpleasant.

    Every year in the military I had to get that darn shot. I think I don’t get it now just because of that. I know I should though.

    I'll take my chances on the fifth decade of not having one.
    They aren't promoted or marketed where I live.

    I got a flu shot 3 weeks ago, two days later I had a two day bout with something flu like. I thought to myself it could have been worse. I was right. I've spent the last five days in and out of the throne room, lost 11 pounds. Happy Holidaze. Today is my first day back to normal, or as close as I get.

    I got it last Christmas, spent Christmas day flat on my back alone in the dark, it was pretty miserable, was out for several weeks all in all. Got the flu shot this year, dont know if it will help but at least I tried, I dont want to get the Flu again if I can possibly avoid it.
