mjohnson71: /Grandmother used to scare us with stories of the 1918 flu stuff
dognose4: Normally, I say yes, get a flu shot. It not only helps you, it also helps prevent the spread of the flu.This year however, the main problem is that this year's flu outbreak is NOT vaccinated against in this year's flu vaccine! This is probably a good year to practice all the other safeguards. Eating right, washing hands, limiting contact, etc.
Disciple_of_Trogdor: Im a 27 year old fatguy. I've never gotten a flu shot in my life. When I was sick, I rode it out, usually only taking the occaisonal ny-quil to get some much needed sleep, drank plenty of fluids and soup, lived with being sick for a little while. The most potent shiat I've ever put in my system was some kind of anti-congestion stuff I got once because I felt like I was breathing water. Dont even remember what It was called, but it cleared it up right quick, though I was hacking shiat out for a week.I got some flu-like symptoms a little before christmas. My immune system chewed up and spat that shiat out in about two days.This is what happens when you fark your immune system with those anti-bacterial OCD dispensers that pop up all over the place by not letting it learn how to fight the nasty shiat.
HellRaisingHoosier: I've never gotten a flu shot.Then again, I'm a healthy, male in his mid-twenties ... so I figure save the shots for the folks that needs/want 'em.
Spanky McStupid: Marcintosh: GET A FLU SHOT - GET A FLU SHOT - GET A FLU SHOT -Today is my first day fully coherent since before New Years Eve. I don't drink.Tamiflu is $15 a pill and you're sold 10 of 'em and psssst - it doesn't do that much. I suspect fraud.I haven't had the flu in a very long time 15 - 20 years. I could not fend for myself this time. I've lost 3 whole days somewhere in there.Get a flu shot - yes even now- go today - go now- leave work and get one.Yeaaaah, maybe not. My cousin has had this since 12/27 and had a flu shot so I'll pass, thanks.
CapeFearCadaver: Nope. I'm horribly allergic to anything in the Mycins family, to which the flu shot has ~3 mycins/myxins. Become violently ill for days on end, it has put me in the hospital before.
