    Flu shots????

    I know there are a lot of geezers(TTT) on this here web forum, do y'all get flu shots?


    I've never gotten one, but I'm starting to get paranoid with the bad flu bug going around.


    I have always heard that a lot of folks get “flu like symptoms” for several days after a flu shot. I'm not down with that.


    What sayeth the brain trust? Get a flu shot? Don't get a flu shot?

    The ER thread showed that a lot of forum members get their health advice online. I would recommend asking Google or better yet Siri.

    I have never gotten one and I get the flu about once every 20 years. I think it is just another way for the pharmaceuticals to get your money by scaring the public.

    My doc recommends a flu shot every year. Been getting one every year for the last 10 years. So far no flu.

    Haven’t had one since I got out of the military 20 years ago. Can count on one hand how many times I’ve had the flu since.
    I avoid crowds, wash my hands and eat my collards!

    I have gotten mine for the last five years with no problems. Doctor recommended it one year so I did and have since. Publix gave you $25 to get a flu shot from them this year.

    Had the flu once in 63 years. Although it kicked my *** I still don't get a shot. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Nope, and have never had the flu.
