Conrad Allen - well, I should get it. For some reason, avoiding it. (Is that fear? May be!
No as it has been proven that they are not effective.
•It does’t work: The Cochrane Database – an objective, gold-standard assessment of available evidence has plainly stated, in TWO STUDIES, that there is no data to support efficacy in children under two, and in adults. Even the former Chief Vaccine Officer at the FDA states: “there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.” Liking the idea of being protected from the flu does not equate to being protected from the flu. That’s essentially what your vaccine-promoting doctor (or pharmacist) is engaging in – promoting an idea.

I have never had one.
Never have and have no intentions of doing so
I have never got one, i have thought about it long and hard and so far so good. Not sure how far to push that though.
Did not in the past. Did this year. No problems.
Tony and Suzanne Marri...
No i do not get it. I only had it once and got sick that year.
I should, but I don't.
Good morning Conrad. Even if I don't can we still sit together?
Good Saturday morning Conrad. No, I do not.
No, the shots are just a guess as to which flu strain may be around for the season. I don't like the odds of the government guessing correctly...
This will be my second year.
I don't. I got the flu shot one year and stayed in bed for weeks...(S)
Les, on the other hand is a faithful flu shot recepient.
yeah, did you see how little last years protected us? It was below 20% if I recall correctly.
Stopped getting flu shots when my kids got older. Hubby got one.
No, I don't like needles so I just try to avoid sick people.
Yes, I get a flu shot every year.
Never have and never will, every year I see my facebook blow up with people that got the shot and either got sick or had some crazy side effects. They also still tend to get sick throughout winter.
I'll just deal with one cold and let my body handle it.
No, last time I got one was when I was little since then I choose not to.
Flu shot, annual physical, etc. You have to stay healthy to survive in this business.
Never; enjoy your dose of Thimerosal!
Conrad Allen Yes, got one when they were first available.
Yes sir, we do. We got ours last month.
I did last year for the first time in a while.
Last year I got a flu short for the first time in 40 years. I just got mine for this year.
Yes, the VA offers them to veterans and I have been getting them for several years --- but I do not really know if they help.
Yes, after they stopped using a live vaccine I do an annual. I also got my shingles shot last year.
