I had gotten a flu shot for years, but then last year I watched an "Inside Edition" show about a young girl who got a flu shot and it pretty much ruined her, physically. She had this strange reaction to it and got symptoms like M.S. She went from being healthy to being disabled...and all from a flu shot reaction.
Now addmittidly, this would be a rare, rare occurance...but it scared me enough that I didn't get a flu shot last year and I did just fine. I probably won't get one this year, either.
Recently I was shocked when I asked my sister if she was gonna get a flu shot and she said she had NEVER had one and did just fine! So that kinda helped the arguement.
But some folks who get lung infections pretty badly may need to take some sort of preventive measures. It's been a hard choice for me, because I am the type who has gotten sick before and ended up with pneumonia! (But this only seems to happen if I get my back chilled, so I take special care to wear layers in fall and winter.)
So I may avoid a flu shot, but I may get a pneumonia prevention shot. But I sometimes wonder if either one of them is really necessary.
