No shot, "a touch" of the flu for a few days, nothing bad though. I didn't answer the pill. There was no box for no shot/ little flu.

I believe the virus in the flu vaccine is denatured in some way. It's not the virus that worries me, I don't get the flu vaccine because I don't like the 'carrier' in the vaccine.

Get a shot every year,
Thank you Kaiser.
Haven't had the flu or bad cold for years.
But due to my age,
I think I got a special brew last year.

You're missing an option. I have never had a flu vaccine and have not had the flu since 2011

I didn't want to jinx anybody who has been healthy so far.

My wife talked me into getting a flu shot a few years ago. I get one every year now. Since I started getting the flu shot I stopped having to go to Dr. for some antibiotics every winter.

Getting a flu shot did not give me flu. YMMV.
