Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

I got mine last Monday. I was a bit sore for one day in that shoulder and a bit tired, but not anything of note. I'm forced to through work, or I can wear a mask for 4 months. I really have no choice in the matter other than quitting and that's not happening.

I haven't taken one since the early 80's. I'll take my chances.

I would rather have the flu than go where I have to go to get the shot.

I have already been exposed to the flu by a bunch of sick pigs, and gave myself a shot of Circumvent. I should be fine for the next year.

Come visit. I've had it for a week now but i'll be happy to give it to you because I've always been of the opinion the only way I can get rid of it is to give it to someone else. Works every time.
(you can thank me later, and yes, I had the flu shot)

What puzzles me about the article is,,the folks that I've heard say they had the flu immediately after the shot.. The flu virus wasn't even around to speak of at that time,,yet this study states it weakens the immune system.

My mom took it and got the flu every year. I have never taken it and don’t get the flu.
Just seems to me from all the people I know that get it are playing Russian roulette.
