My Granny was getting the flu and pneumonia shots in the 80's. I don't think they were advertised like they are now.

I remember when President Ford came on national TV urging everyone to get a flu shot. I think this was in 1976 or'77.

It is estimated that up to 35,000 die a year from the flu. It makes no sense at all not to get the yearly flu shot.



I'm pretty tired. I think I'll go home now.

Had one flu shot in 1987. It's worked wonders so far. Gave me the chills and chits for 2 days though.

I had to get in those lines in the late 70's, Bob. Lined up for literally 1/2 mile, doctors on both sides, a needle in each arm. Some guys would take two steps after the shots and pass smooth out. Having to watch that and then it's your turn, wondering if you were going to pass out or not lol.

Iím with you. Iíve had the shot every year the last 13 years. I got the flu once, at Christmas, I felt bad one day and it was gone after 3 days. People are different and have different immune systems. ďAs for me and mine, we get the shot.Ē If you donít get the shot and never get the flu, then by gawd, good for you.

I've gotten the flu shot for the past 10 years or more and no flue. Once or twice it has gotten me down for a day, but that's it.

Have had the flu twice in 50 years. I'd rather take my chances then guaranteed to miss a couple days work because of a shot.

Remember the Swine Flu outbreak in the 70's?

They started giving mass flu shots out, and then a number of people started having GuillainĖBarre syndrome, basically makes you paralyzed.

I never wanted a flu shot after that.

I believe everyone except me should get the shot.

to me its just plain nuts not to get a flue shot or any other available and affordable vaccine for that matter.

Wish they drop the age requirements on the shingles vaccine so younger folk could get it. My wife has already had a case of shingles in her 40's and it was definitely not a fun experience....

http://www.history.com/topics/1918-flu-pandemic


I recently learned that my grandfather died of the flu in 1918 at the age of 31, five months before my father was born. I think that the story of that pandemic has been lost to many because it occurred at roughly the same time as WW I, but it took more lives than the war.

I donít know what the Air Force gave me, but on day 1 of boot camp they lined us up and had a bunch of guys with the air gun immunization guns. Had us walk down the line and each of them gave us a shot in the arm. I still have 3 raised bumps in a triangle shape on my arm from that. 23 years ago now. I canít recall having the flu since then, so it mustíve worked.

I'm about as big a advocate for vaccines as they come, but I normally don't get the flu shot. On even the best years they are usually only about 60% effective. I've gotten the shot about a dozen times. 100% of those times I've felt like [censored] for 2-3 days after. It's true thousands of people die annually from the flu, but virtually all of those are very young, very old, or have some other major medical issue. I'd encourage everyone to get it, but personally... I'll take my chances.

People get "colds" all the time still today. Many that I work with are coughing, hacking and sneezing. But because society today looks down upon someone with a cold because it could be contagious, the people with colds will say, "These damn allergies". Allergies, Upper Respiratory Infection, Cold, Flu, no one knows. Some mild cases of the "flu" may be mistaken as a cold or allergies. My daughter had some allergy symptoms, went to the doc, they tested for the flu and said "You have the flu". No other symptoms, just congestion, runny nose, etc. I always considered the flu to be when you get knocked down. I mean headache, puking, shixting, couging,hacking etc. Some folks with the flu like to say "I'm feeling "Puny" today. Puny, WTH is that, puny? Puny is when your skinnyg and weak. In summary, I do get the flu shot,but they say there is a 33% chance it will work. I've probably had the flu "allergies" 20 times. Who knows.

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.

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.

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.


yep

I get the flu shot every year. And I've never had the flu or reaction to the shot.

Because I'm not some sort of hypochondriac.

I think the non shotters should just admit they are afraid of teeny tiny needles.

That leg is tiny because of atrophy. I had club foot and that leg spent the first 3 years of my life in a cast. It wonít get any bigger.

Sometime when you have a minute, do a search on what exactly goes in a flu vaccine shot.

Might change your perspective a bit.
