I think you should get it but I haven't had one in the last 3 years cause I have been so crazy busy
I have to agree with D Stettler... I did mention this in one of my hubpages its the one called preparing for the new winter approaching, check it out I have a lot of information about the flu shot there
The people at the disease control division of the US government take their bets "guess" as to what the most common thread of flu will be for the season. Unfortunately, lu is a virus, and guess what? There is no absolute with viruses, they are constantly changing so we are unable to find a way to completley create immunity or cure them.
I think you should get it, especially if you're either in a high-risk group or regularly exposed to a high-risk group. I used to never get my flu shot because I work at home, I'm exposed to very few people and vice versa, and I'd rather my body fight it off naturally. However, now that I have a 4-year-old and soon will have a small infant in the house, I keep up on the shot because they are at the most risk of contracting and having serious complications from the flu. It's not worth the risk of not getting the shot.
I can't remember the last time I got a flu shot and I haven't gotten the flu in a long time. It probably doesn't hurt, but I don't listen to the fear driven hysteria.
I try to get it every year. One year I didn't get the shot, but then I actually got the flu! I was out sick for a week. I'm always worried that the shot will hurt, but it never does!
Thank you for responding to my inquiry. Good information for a hub.

Uninformed people in many parts of the world are still being vaccinated against H1N1 swine flu, despite mounting evidence that the vaccine does not work, that the whole "pandemic" was a hoax, and that the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus. And beware, the H1N1 vaccine is now often...

Six days after allowing my Doctor to talk me in to a flu shot guess what happened? That's right. I came down with the flu. I've heard that if this happens it means we already have the virus and the shot just accelerates the process. Doctor warned me that because of my age I...

Would you get the flu shot if you haven't had the flu or the shot in at least 20 years?
