Every year - I have had 2 cases of the flu in my lifetime when I was only in my 30s and it really beat me up. Not messin' with it in my 50s emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Yep every year so far. I believe in prevention!

Fall seven times. Stand up eight. -Japanese proverb

"I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are, because a could-be is a maybe that is reaching for a star.
I'd rather be a has-been than a could-have-been, because a could-have been has never been, but a has was once an are."
Milton Berle

Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.
- Janis Joplin

I do not - I am not in any high risk category. My husband gets one each year b/c he has had the flu twice in his life and it was horrible, he was almost hospitalized and tends to pass out.

I always do - if you get them early in the season, it prevents problems. They say it's impossible to get the flu from the shots as you're just getting the antibodies - but a lot of people who were already exposed do get the flu after the shot, simply because it hasn't had time to take effect yet. I always get one the minute they are available - in fact, I PRE-ORDER them months in advance.....and it really does help! My needle-phobic husband sometimes gets the nasal dose and when he does, he avoids the flu - when he doesn't get the vaccine, he ALWAYS gets the flu, usually several times during the year, even though he is otherwise extremely healthy. I haven't had the flu for many years [knock on wood] even when everyone around me is sick with flu so I highly recommend getting them.

Unfortunately, I do get colds every now and then - when do we get a vaccine for that? haha!

No. I got one once, and got a raging case of the flu from it!
