POLL: Are you planning on getting the flu shot this year?

There are a few types available this season, the tri-virus and the quad-virus ones. With last season being a hard and long season, some of the clinicians I deal with seem to think this one won't be so bad. So will you get the shot? Will you have your family get it too?

SwimSwim --- 1 years ago -

My work requires I get the shot, so yeah. 

Gigix4 --- 1 years ago -

Yep - I'll get it. Senior citizens can't afford not to. 

Dr Aborto --- 1 years ago -

Most likely, yes. 

Snake Plissken --- 1 years ago -

Of course! How else will the government implant the upgraded automaton droid chip in me? 

sweetscreaminmonkey --- 1 years ago -

yep i will. i am diabetic and dr has told me to get it.. this will be my 3rd year too so i dont mind anymore.. 

Ned Fred --- 1 years ago -

Im going to get it. They offer them cheap on campus and I cant afford to get sick. 

dogs --- 1 years ago -

I usually don't get it for me or the kids, but my son was very, very sick with the flu last year. Not sure what to do - I know it isn't 100% effective.

Only your son got it? Are you sure it was the flu? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 1 years ago -

No, I'm bullet proof. Lol 

BuxomBroad --- 1 years ago -

YES without a doubt. What are all u woosies afraid of?

Get the freaking shot or deal with what happened to your son again possibly. This ain't rocket science. 

dogs --- 1 years ago -

Only your son got it? Are you sure it was the flu?

Yes, tested positive for the flu. I stayed on top of cleaning, sterilizing and keeping other family members away, so the rest of us didn't get it (dh had gotten the shot).

I'm not an idiot - there are just many conflicting views out there on what we are putting into our bodies. 

Perfection --- 1 years ago -

dogs, to your point on the vaccine you are right, there are no guarantees that the viruses the vaccine protects against are going to be the ones that are out in the populace this year. It is a gamble.

Way to go dogs. To have it not spread in your household is wonderful. 

snowprincess --- 1 years ago -

My doctor says not to get it. 

FANCY PANTS --- 1 years ago -

My doctor says not to get it.

Did he say why? 

JAMS --- 1 years ago -

Nope. None of us get the flu shot. Ever. 

In AbsentiaW --- 1 years ago -

It is a gamble.

Yes, but he odds are in my favor.

Free flu shots for seniors at the annual health fair in Humble each year. Not sure of the date this year.

Does anyone know this years date?
Thanks.. 

ladybeachbum --- 1 years ago -

My son(23) and I had one flu shot years ago. We've never had the flu and just think we can survive the flu if we got it. 

FabFive --- 1 years ago -

LBB the real full-blown flu feels like ten days of a slow and painful death. 

Dr Aborto --- 1 years ago -

We've never had the flu and just think we can survive the flu if we got it. 

I said that too until I got the flu one year. It suuuuuuucks. I never knew my whole body could hurt by just walking. Shuffling up the stairs made me out of breath. I have to remind myself every year that getting a free shot is worth it. 

PinehurstMom --- 1 years ago -

I had the flu last year and can't remember ever being sicker in my entire life. It felt like I would die for a week and a half and didn't feel 100% better for about a month. My daughter got it next, but we got her Tamiflu in time and she was hardly sick at all. We will both be getting shots this time around. 

ladybeachbum --- 1 years ago -

Free isn't even in the consideration, it is more of what is in the shot. Now, my dh gets every shot that is offered and he has all kinds of colds and flu, even got pneumonia a few years back. 

Keystone --- 1 years ago -

You only have to get the flu one time and then you'll get the shot every year. Put me out of commission for 6 weeks and lost 10 pounds. 

gunsnroses --- 1 years ago -

Statistics show that it offers you cardio protection. Flu kills many thousands of Americans every year. Get the shot 

JAMS --- 1 years ago -

I had the flu. It never encouraged me to get the shot. 

Keystone --- 1 years ago -

I had the flu. It never encouraged me to get the shot.

Enjoy being sick? 

JAMS --- 1 years ago -

Thoroughly. Time off work, everyone leaves me alone, I get pampered, and sleep for days. 

Snake Plissken --- 1 years ago -

^^^ big fan of Obamacare and unions.

Lets all work harder so this one can take some time off. 

Peeking Boo --- 1 years ago -

Egg allergy.... Sucks bring sick but it's better than getting the shot. 

SleightOfHand --- 1 years ago -

"I said that too until I got the flu one year. It suuuuuuucks. I never knew my whole body could hurt by just walking. Shuffling up the stairs made me out of breath. I have to remind myself every year that getting a free shot is worth it. "

Same here. I caught it 3 years ago and never want to go through that misery again 

JAMS --- 1 years ago -

I don't need Obamacare. You pay for our military insurance. For life.

Thanks!!!! 

Snake Plissken --- 1 years ago -

You haven't done your homework. 

JAMS --- 1 years ago -

You'll be ok ;) 

freebyrdll --- 1 years ago -

To late , I think I've got the flu :( 

Dorothy Parker --- 1 years ago -

Yeah...I'm getting one.

I hope it doesn't hurt as bad as an antibiotic shot!

I've never felt pain like that in my life. :( 

Gigix4 --- 1 years ago -

I've used Walgreens on North Park the last several years to get my flu shot and those pharmacists do a great job at giving shots.

No, they do not hurt like an antibiotic shot. 

Dorothy Parker --- 1 years ago -

Phew! I hope you're right, Gigi! 

Gigix4 --- 1 years ago -

The injection site might be a little sore for a day or 2 but not too bad. They usually advise that you take a couple of Tylenol after getting the shot.
