done!! I took the chance and got it. If it decreases the chances of getting the flu, why not.

Just got the full court press at my annual check up this morning and turned it down. She made a note not to ask me again the future— yeah right

No. Been through scarlet fever, flu, pneumonia and more strep then I care to recall before I was even a teen. Funny how healthy I’ve been since then. I get to be around a lot of nasty places each year. Good eating, some herbal boosts in colder time of year no issues. Probably helps my immune system is cranking most of the year due to places I work and the number of people I come in contact with. Funny is a guy is used to work with he’d get flu shot, hand sanitizer like people use it now, constantly cleaning anything he thought was germ laden, freaking guy was sick most of the winter with some ailment or another.

I had them for several years - required as a medic - but no WAY am I getting one this year! You kidding me? Vaccinations cause AUTISM!! (Proven beyond reasonable question in the laboratory of science denial).

Since most everyone's already wearing masks, it should reduce the possibility of contracting the flu significantly. I'll still get the shot mainly because I'm over 60.

effectiveness is all over the place, and I pretty well never get sick. Wife gets it every year, and gets it about 1 in 3 it seems. I have a long track record of not getting sick without taking extra medicine, and generally don't take unnecessary medicine as a preventative measure for something that is already a crap shoot of contracting.

Why the responses... not this year, no way. I've never had a flu shot. I got Influenza B in Oct last year. First time ever with the flu and it sucked.

Because Bill Gates is going to inject you with a 5G tracking device in the vaccine. Oh yeah, vaccines cause autism too!
