I have asthma.
Is your doctor suggesting that you get one, since you will be pregnant during flu season?

I get the flu shot every year. I got the flu a few years ago, and I was sick for weeks. So it's flu shots for me every year since. No flu since, and I don't seem to get as many colds now either.

I get a flu shot every year, because I have asthma, and when I get sick, my lungs are screwed.

I never had one until I joined the Air Force, now I get sick once a year

They give us shots for ANYTHING...I grew used to the needles but I have never had to be stuck more than once, I had an IV the other week and I just turn my head, but it was just once. Everything else is just shots, inthe arm, in the bum...you name it, Ive probaly had it...oh yea, and Im not immune to chicken pox so I get extra extra!

I've never gotten the flu shot. In fourth grade, I came down with a nasty case of the flu and was miserable for a week and a half. I have to admit, after that, I was tempted to start getting flu shots. Didn't want to have to go through THAT again. But I never got the shots because most doctors say that for my age, since I am healthy, I really don't need one. If I were really young or approaching old age and/or had health issues then I would get one. I've never had the flu since. In fact, I haven't gotten sick much since I had the flu. I used to get sick quite a bit before that. Hmm...
