    Do you get flu shots, do you not? Do you do it because you want it or you feel like you should do it? Do you not get it because you don't think about it or because you simply don't want it?
    Before having a child, I never got a flu shot. Now that he is exposed to other children in day care, and I can't help but kiss him and love on him all the time, I need to protect myself. If I didn't have Weston, I wouldn't get a flu shot.

    I use to get them when they were free where I work, but not anymore. They never seemed to bother me.

    That is true. When my husband is sick, I make sure we have plenty of cheese to go with the whine.

    That has been my experience too. The worst reaction I ever had from a vaccine was a mild pain in my arm for a couple hours. Well worth it to prevent a week of sickness IMO.

    I'm surprised how many people said they felt crappy after a shot. Allergic reactions are very rare for most kinds of vaccines (including flu shots). I wonder how much of it is psychological rather than physical.

    I can't. This is important.

    Re: Do you get flu shots?

    I never have, never will, have never needed one. I rarely ever get sick. I still don't see any point to it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Oddly enough, that's the same reason I give for sleeping with slutty women.

    Re: Do you get flu shots?

    Never got a flu shot. It has been about 5 years since i got the flu, and after an influenza test yesterday, i have it again. Un****ing believable.
