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 --- 327 days ago -

My work requires I get the shot, so yeah. 

Gigix4 --- 327 days ago -

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

Dr Aborto --- 327 days ago -

Most likely, yes. 

Snake Plissken --- 327 days ago -

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

sweetscreaminmonkey --- 327 days 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.. 

Hissy Fit --- 327 days ago -

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

dogs --- 327 days 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. 

FANCY PANTS --- 327 days ago -

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

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 327 days ago -

No, I'm bullet proof. Lol 

BuxomBroad --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days 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. 

FANCY PANTS --- 327 days ago -

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

snowprincess --- 327 days ago -

My doctor says not to get it. 

FANCY PANTS --- 327 days ago -

My doctor says not to get it.

Did he say why? 

JAMS --- 327 days ago -

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

In AbsentiaW --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days ago -

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

Dr Aborto --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days 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 --- 327 days 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 --- 326 days 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 --- 326 days ago -

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

JAMS --- 326 days ago -

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

Keystone --- 326 days ago -

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

Enjoy being sick? 

JAMS --- 326 days ago -

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

Snake Plissken --- 326 days ago -

^^^ big fan of Obamacare and unions.

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

Peeking Boo --- 326 days ago -

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

SleightOfHand --- 326 days 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 --- 326 days ago -

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

Thanks!!!! 

Snake Plissken --- 326 days ago -

You haven't done your homework. 

JAMS --- 326 days ago -

You'll be ok ;) 

freebyrdll --- 326 days ago -

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

Dorothy Parker --- 326 days 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 --- 326 days 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 --- 326 days ago -

Phew! I hope you're right, Gigi! 

Gigix4 --- 326 days 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.
