    With my job I come into contact with a lot of people. Ide rather not chance it, so I get the shot every year and my son gets it too.

    I have many medical conditions, so I get a flu shot to avoid a possible complication in my body because of the flu.

    I am lucky in that my company offers the flu shot every year at my office.

    I never get it. When we have been swabbed and it was sent to a lab....every single time we were told the flu we got wasn't in the vaccine anyway. We use all natural cures and get by just fine.

    Yes, mine is covered by insurance. DH's insurance (high ded) doesn't cover it. But City Market had a $15 off flu shots you could load to your value card so it only cost him $10. It pays to shop around.

    I got a flue shot for the first time about 10 years ago. I ended up getting so sick that I couldn't even move off of the couch for a week. I have never been so sick in my life. I haven't got the flu shot since, and haven't been sick since. No flu shots for me!!
