I got it, no flu. I've gotten the flu shot several consecutive years, and I have not gotten the flu.

Never get the shot hardly ever get the flu. When I do it only last a day or two very mild. Kids are the same way. My wife however gets the flu once a year never last more than 4 days.

Treatment includes: baths, sleep, soup, more sleep

Me: No shot, no flu.

Wife and daughter: Both got the shot, and neither one has had the flu.

I never get the shot, and they always do. One works at the school, the other is a student at the same school. We all three take a multi-vitamin, and an aditional 1,000 mg of vitamin C everyday. Also, we get raw milk (unpasturized) from a local farm, which has antibodies in it that the store bought stuff is lacking. Add to that, that I am a chronic hand washer, and I use purell frequently. None of us has had the flu in 5 years, and it is rare that we get sick.

The downside to this is that when anyone of us gets sick, we get hit hard.

Just got the flu shot three days ago. No flu yet.

Have gotten sick sometimes after a flu shot in past years - so stopped taking it. But was talked into it by a doc this year. So far - not sick...

I don't know if this coincidental or a medical fact. It seems like the first year you get a flu shot you get sick. After the first year you don't get the flu as often as those who go untreated.
