getting the flu shot

Post by musculArgirl2 »

just wondered what people's opinions are on this? Should everyone get the flu shot? I've never gotten it but i'm debating about it it for this year.

I've never gotten it either. Don't really see the point.

Why wouldn't you get the flu shot?

I get one every year and haven't had the flu yet! It's quick, easy and painless. It's a no brainer.

Some people report feeling very bad after flu shots, particularly older people.

i still wonder about this. There is some illness you can get with the flu shot rarely. I'm kind of thinking i will when i'm feeling better from the stomach flu. :)

Getting the flu shot is a great idea, it gives you extra protection from the nasty germs, who wants flu?

I do not get the flu shot. In fact several people whom I know did not get the flu until after they got the flu shot! The health industry in the USA is in it to make a profit so they try to create a demand for their products. A person who is healthy with a good immune system has nothing to worry about if they get the flu you just ride it out for a few days. I don't discount that some people in some circumstances maybe should get the flu shot but for a healthy person with a good immune system should not in opinion.
