You couldn't PAY me to skip the flu shot. If you get actual influenza A or B (or worst-case-scenario) both
you are going to be mighty sick.

A severe cold is not the flu.
Human metapneumovirus is not the flu, although it would fool you.

People do not die from the flu shot.
People do die from influenza.

I get the flu shot every year. Work hounds people who pass on the shot since they administer right in our building. I still got the flu last year so bad.

A friend of mine had always passed on the shot. And the H1N1 scared him and his family years back. They were making plans to get the shot and his daughter came down with H1N1. It nearly killed her and she is handicapped for the rest of her life. In a wheelchair, no hope of a real life, requires 24 hour care.

That makes me get the flu shot.

My daughter (school teacher) and her husband took my two granddaughters for their flu shots to a preferred (by their Blue Cross Anthem) health insurance provider) clinic. The family pays approximately $500/month health insurance premiums.

The clinic staff refused to inoculate the girls and stated the clinic was limiting the flu shot inventory for people who couldn't afford insurance.

Needless to say, the clinic and Blue Cross Anthem will lose the families membership.

Such bvll sh!t

What does that even mean? Just go to Rite-Aid or any other drug store and get it. Spend 2 minutes calling ahead to make sure they have it.

I've never had one. I've gotten what might have been the flu a few times in my adult life and just figured it was part of life. Few days of fever and one to two weeks of feeling like poo. No telling if the shot would have prevented it. Every time it was because co-workers came to work sick and spread the joy.

Got the shot this year. Lots of international air travel. Not so easy to deal with the flu when you cant afford the time away, or get it while away.

Have skipped some years. No reason other than I forgot or felt too late in the season to care.

Not dead yet.

I had Anthem Blue Cross as well but they just told me to go to Rite Aid or CVS and get a shot. Fully covered. I now have Blue Shield but the result is the same. It's much easier to get the shot at a pharmacy than it is to schedule an appointment with my Dr., who by the way, is always out when I call.

Just get the shot and move on. If everyone would get the darn shot there would be less chance of people getting the flu. The only people who think they feel sick from receiving the shot are hypochondriacs. You don't get sick from getting the shot, it's a myth. The shot is not a 100% sure way of not catching the flu, but at least it helps. Especially if you use mass transit at all.

I don't like to be around people who recently traveled, especially with 2 kids 3, and 9 months. Over the holidays there was a cousin who flew in from asia. Yeah, tried to keep my distance.
