    I don't know if there is another thread on Seasonal flu shots so I'm posting here.

    Shame on me for not getting the flu shot. I was sick for 4 full days and I'm still recovering. This was the first year I missed Christmas with the family.

    This is not a feel sorry for me post but just want you all to know that I thought I would deal with it when I got it. Well, I got it and it was not fun at all.

    Next year, I'll be the first lining up to get the shot. Hope those who don't get the flu shot will consider doing the same.

    Hugs to all. Have a healthy, safe holiday season.

    On the news here they said that the flu shot had 2 strains in it.
    another strain related to swine flu is going around here and not in the shot.
    We all had the shot, but my grandson got it so bad that he lost weight.
    My friend has had it for a week.

    The worst case of the flu I ever endured was after my one (and only) flu shot. I was sick within an hour of the injection, and by the next day had to be hospitalized. I thought I was going to die- it was that bad.

    Just thinking about it, all these years later, makes me nauseous and achy. Ugh.
    Same here! I'll just take my chances with the flu. That was the sickest I had ever been since I had Typhoid fever from a water source, I was 8 months old and don't remember that tho. I took care of my family doctor's aunt, and every year I would take the flu, when she took her shot.

    I'll probably just get the regular flu shot. I've been getting that for the past few years, and the mist before that with no problems.

    Never taken one yet, but I fear them as I am allergic to a lot of things. Had a reaction once with a pneumonia shot 1998, didn't last long but scared me and everyone near.

    My boss always gets one and I then get a bit of something afterward, but cannot be sure it is b/c of him using my phone and keyboard, or germs from the bank or store.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    I am just going to say this. I had Swine Flu Pneumonia in 2009. I almost died. I am the only person out of 14, who had it in October 2009, who lived. In the United States. I have brain deficits, my immune system is shot, cardiac issues and more. I have seen 17 specialists in the last 4 years and I will NEVER be the same healthy person I was prior. I can no longer work, take care of my family, be active. If you decide not to get the vaccine, at least make sure those you love get it. Mine is a cautionary tale. I am so blessed to be here. Swine Flu is no joke.

    My then 1 yr old son and I got Swine Flu in the winter of 2009. I felt like I was being ripped to pieces from the inside out, and could not keep much down. If it weren't for my keeping hydrated no matter how many times I got sick my son and I probably wouldn't be here. He would not take pedialyte etc so he relied on my breast milk. I will never forget how scared I was for both of us. I'm actually surprised we made it because we both had immune issues, but I also heard the strain we had in Alaska was not as brutal as the lower 48. I'm now wondering if some of my problems stem from that. Hugs.

    I was one of the medical trial participants for the H1N1 vaccine. I believe in the science of vaccination and was happy to participate - to help protect our species from the ravages of a dangerous disease.

    Well thank you for being a part of the trial, I think you're very brave.
    I don't even like taking a paracetamol so I'd never offer to participate in a vaccination trial.
    That said, if I had an illness where they had no cure yet they had a drug they felt might work, but had not been through trials, would I take it? Very probably.
