    No. I'm not in the risk category.

    Re: Do you get flu shots?

    I have to, most of the time, due to the Navy. I did get an exemption while pregnant. Now though, I think I'm going to go get the actual shot from the health dept. and bring in the paperwork so that I won't have to get the one that you snort from the Navy. My dislike of things going up my nose outdoes my fear of needles.

    And we've already been told that we will be getting the H1N1 vacc. as well as soon as they get them in at the NOSC.

    I do not. Im not much on modern medicine and avoid it as much as possible. I simply live with the consequences.

    The flu is the one thing that I do worry about since it is a fairly regular occurence and it is also the one thing that really kicks my ass. The last time I had the flu I had such a high fever that my legs would not function correctly and I had to have help walking for 3 or 4 days. My legs simply would not respond when I tried to move them.

    Actually, the last time I had the flu, it happened in August. This is generally before the start of flu season. I don't think that I would get the shot if not for the Navy requirement.

    Re: Do you get flu shots?

    Unless one has some sort of allergy to shots, I really don't understand why anyone would NOT get it. It takes maybe 10 minutes of your time, and is free or very cheap.

    Yep, I can't afford to get sick for a long time. Usually I feel like **** the next day, but it beats feeling like **** for a week.

    Ikari, I used to be afraid of needles until I forced myself to give platelets on a regular basis. I went from almost passing out each time to watching them stick the needle in. You should try it!

    Re: Do you get flu shots?

    Never had a flu shot, don't plan on getting one. I try to avoid medicine and doctor's visits until I actually need them.

    I've had the flu like once in almost 40 years, it's not a big enough deal to me to take some shot in an attempt to avoid getting it.

    Besides, I'd rather my immune system do it's job.

    There are plenty of reasons. One being that I do not like taking medicine unless it is a last resort. I take vitamins and am a relatively healthy individual. Another reason is that I rarely get sick. The Flu has never been an issue for me. Finally, I dislike needles with a passion.
