In the Army, they used to take a rusty nail, dip it in a bucket of vaccine and jab you in the neck

The Air Force let us go to the chow hall, eat the made to order omelette of our choice, and fill out a complaint form, which got our drill instructor demoted for our troubles.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a marine whining about something, I could buy about 106 bitcoin. And some jewels from Craigslist.

One more time. You cannot get the flu from a flu shot it is a dead virus. You may get a localized reaction to,the preservatives which can easily be treated with Advil etc. Every epidemiologists world wide are prompting people particularly those over 65 and those under 6. This is particularly is critical if one has underlying medical conditions. Itís fine if one donít care about their own health but at least do it for those that may expose to the virus. Rant over.

The ONE person on the OT that I KNOW needs to make sure they get the flu shot is you Grandpa.

This is pretty much where Iím at. Only flu shot I got was when my sister in law required it and other vaccines before meeting my niece when she was born.

I canít remember ever getting the flu and I donít see the need to get one. This might change in the future.

I got a flu shot once, and became very ill right after.

I asked John, my ER doctor buddy, mid 50s, very experienced great doctor, all about it.

He said, "Joe, clearly you got all the flu-like symptoms, bad throat, fever, coughs, congestion and so on, but you didn't actually get the flu. The flu-shot doesn't really give you the flu. Your symptoms just felt like it."

Then he went on a bit more to describe the flu.

After listening to him, and I do respect him very much as a doctor, I thought to myself, "What's the point of getting a shot? It still feels and ACTS just like the flu!"

...bottom line, we all decide for ourselves. I cannot imagine working somewhere where it's forced.

Seems to me the rise in flu cases is parallel to rise in flu shots.

I got the shot once in '82 and I had to take off work for 3-4 days and was as sick as I can ever remember, even to this day. Have not had one since.

If I get sick, I just get sick.

You don't get the flu by getting the flu shot. The shot protects against certain strains, but not all strains, of the flu. Even if you do wind up getting a strain of the flu that the shot does not protect against, the effects of that flu will still be lessened by having had the shot.

I evidently don't get the flu by NOT getting the flu shot either.
Until that time in '82, I never got the flu either.
Social butterflies are most prone. I aint one.

If you carry a state nursing license the flu shot is mandatory.
