Flu shot
I choose not to place "DIS" in my ability.

There is a light at the end of every tunnel....just pray it's not a train!.

I work at a hospital and we receive the flu shot for free so I've had one each year for the last few.

As I now work in a doctor's office, they are giving the shots here. Our medical assistants had the shots yesterday and now both are sick as h***!!

So, No -- I've never had the shot and I don't think I will.

Yes.....and my son who has asthma and struggles in school gets one too. I am afraid if he gets the flu and out of school he will fall even farther behind. My dh is getting one this year as last March, five days before I was to have my decompression surgery, he came down with the flu and was useless helping me tie up loose ends before my surgery. He felt guilty about it and said he had never felt so sick in his life and does not want to go thru those aches and pains from the flu ever again!

My son received them from 6 mos age on until in Jr high he started having allergic reactions to them so badly we had to quit. His pulmonologist realized he had become allergic to eggs once again ( he was allergic as a toddler) but allergy is too bad to get shot anymore

I have never gotten a flu shot and never will. If you research this, you will find that there are very yucky things inside the flu "vaccine" itself. scary stuff.

I believe in my body's ability to deal with this ...... if I should ever get it. I lived through pneumonia and several other infections. Besides, getting a flu shot does not guarantee that you will not get the flu, only THAT strain.....(as far as I know, I do not keep up with this).....

HOWEVER, people with compromised immune sytems should look into getting a flu shot.....

Chris, did the doc(s) say why you couldn't get them? Sounds bizarre, can't imagine what the impact would be that would prevent us from getting them. I've never had one but just curious.

They seem to think that my immune system to messed up due to the Syrinx. My husband is in the army so I deal with alot of military doctors. And my PCP dosent want to chance me getting sick off of the shot. We where headed to an Over Seas Post and when I got the Hep A and B shots I had a very bad reaction. That was before I was Dx'ed with SM. When they read over my records they decided not to chance ANY vaccines with me. They are thinkin that my Dx is why I had a reaction, not sure why.

Hi y'all,

I get the flu shot every year, as soon as it (or them) is available.

Reason: both of my parents live in a nursing home, and I spend a lot of time there - I would hate to accidentally spread the illness to any of the fragile folks who live there.
