Why not? I get one every year. It's not to help me, but to help folks over 65 who are more likely to DIE when they get the flu. Do it for your moms and dads.

Always do. You'd have to be an idiot not to get one.

I get one every year. My husband and I are the care takers of my dad who is 79. I have to do what I can to make sure not to pass anything on to him. He can’t take the flu shot bc he did about 6 years ago and had a severe reaction. You couldn’t touch him at all. Just to touch his skin was extreme pain for him. It looked like he had a stroke when he moved.

No one has ever died from a flu shot.

I'm an idiot.

I do every year, because I am a lot of things, but being an idiot isn't one of them.
And I never get the flu either.

We all will for my Mom's sake, she is in her early 80's.

My Dad passed away at the end of January from complications from the flu.
