Who's getting a flu shot and who's not?

I got one because my doctor recommended it.Now,I haven't always been up to date with flu shots.But,for some reason I feared I was going to get it,so I better get the shot.I know it may seem crazy to some,but I just felt the need to do it.

I'm a big advocate, tho there is much debate about it.

I'm not getting it, even though my job offers it for free as my boss keeps pointedly reminding me. I don't think anyone's crazy for getting the shot--I'm not anti-vaccine--but I just don't feel the need. I'm young and healthy, so if I do get the flu the chances are good that I'll be fine.

I had it once, in college, and it sucked, so I'll probably kick myself if I get the flu this year.

Nope, I try to avoid the unnecessary vaccines.

I have lupus (immunocompromised) and am a health care worker. I got my flu shot a week ago. Even if it's a poor match it still provides some protection.

I'm saying thanks-but-no-thanks on that shot to nowhere.

Palin is an expert on flu immunization.

She can see a vaccine production facility from her house. hee hee

Nope, pass.
There's no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold so he turned up the sun.
I'm not, and I don't have any plans to in future years, either.
3A, medium fine. Currently avoiding shampoos, 'cones, 'xanes and sulfates. Hair length - a bit beyond BSL. Mostly CG since July 2, 2008.

I have not gotten it nor do I ever plan on it.

I probably will give in to the pressure (our clinical directors highly recommend it). Besides, I'll be giving the shots at a clinic this year, so it will be pretty convenient. This will be my first flu shot as far as I can remember.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

Nope. My doctor strongly recommends it too since I'll be pregnant during flu season, but I've decided I'm not doing any more vaccines except tetanus boosters.

The Rite Aid near me is having a clinic next week. I'm all over it. I've had the flu before, and my asthma has gotten much worse over the last year (ER visit and pneumonia in May), and I don't have sick days, so yes. I'm getting it. My winter health seems to be better when I get it, too.
Under construction.
When I get the flu, I almost always get pneumonia or at least pretty severe asthmatic bronchitis. I get it every year I don't get the shot, so I'll get the shot. Sometimes that prevents it, sometimes it's not the needed strain, but it at least improves my chances.

*sigh* My roommate is likely running a fever right now, and we all know what that could mean....I hope I get to decide! Right now, it's not a "shot or no shot" debate in my head, it's a "please, oh pleeeeease don't let me catch this nasty intestinal flu that (no joke) started in our rival school!" beg-fest.

...It's a siggie.
"Intestinal flu" isn't the same thing at all, is it?
