I've never gotten a flu shot. I believe like the Romans used to say "That, that doesn't kill us, makes us stronger." Continual exposure to virises and other such nasty things builds our natural immunity systems much greater than any man made efforts to prevent them. I haven't had a major cold or flu for near 20 years now by living by this belief. Maby I'm crazy, but I seem to have unnatural immunity compaired to others, when it comes to Influnenzas and Rhino virusus by living by this philosophy.

I already got the flu this year. Sucked, but I got through it with 102.5 temperature.

S.S.

Actually, that was Nietsche in 1888. But I'm sure the Romans had a similar philosophy.

No flu shot for me.

Nope, haven't ever had one, and don't plan to start now.

Something I couldn't understand last year with all the bird flu craziness; everyone was telling us to go get our flu shots, in fact they were giving them away at my work. But the bird flu hadn't made the jump to humans yet, so the flu shots they were pushing on people were completely useless against it.

I will never get another flu shot or flu mist. I was forced to get them both during my time in the military and I got sick every time. Since using the mist I've developed sinus problems that I never had before. I don't know that the mist caused my problems but they are too closely related for me.

Of course here in a year or two with obamacare you might be forced to get it!
