I've never had a flu shot, and only had what I might call the flu one time(bed ridden for a week with a temp) about 5 years ago.

No, and I don't intend to get it. The last time I went for it we went as a family and all of us ended up sick with the flu about 2 weeks later.

I have yet to have a single flu shot and have never had the flu (knock on wood). The only bad thing I get is Strep Throat but since I battled Strep a few years ago with out any antibiotics I haven't gotten it since (no medical insurance sucks....)

I've only gotten flu shots when I used to work with kids. I'd feel slightly weak for a few days, but that was all. Nowadays, I don't get flu shots and I generally don't get sick, but when I do, I get sick bad. High fever, sneezing, coughing, everything. And it lasts for weeks.

I'm not a high risk person. I am not and I don't come into great contact with the weak. So I don't think it's fair for me to get immunized over someone else who may need it.

I got it when I was in hospital last year, I flagged down the guy who was going around and giving them right before he left.

One thing I have to say-Being in hospital for 3 months gets you over your fear of needles fast. I didn't even feel the needle he used.

Nope and like the rest don't plan to. Unless I need to for when I become an EMT I know you have to get some other crazy shots for that though. My, I think, senior year in high school I got some shots to keep me up to date on things and one was a meningitis shot. I was lime dead for the first two weeks of school.
By 2012 we thought we would have flying cars, all we have is blankets with sleeves.

Never gotten one, frankly don't trust them. Haven't had the flu... Or at least not in any time that I really remember it.

I thankfully have a pretty robust immune system and don't get sick. When I do it's a minor PIA, and usually gone within a day, never keeping me from work.

Seems like my daughter has the same immune system thankfully too. She used to get sick at least once or twice a year, you know... kids and all. Germs... etc.

I don't think she's been sick in the past 3 years now, at all.
