You know it sounds really dumb, but I really do not know. And so if I don't know, maybe others' don't either. I have COPD and allergies, so feel the symptoms most of the time.

Personally I do not take a flu shot but I do take the pneumonia shot and my doctor said he preferred I take the flu shot but it is my choice. But I tend to get really sick with colds, walking pneumonia every year so to me it is worth it. But I really think with all of your issues you need to speak with your doctor about all of this or find another doctor that will address your concerns.

I am not sure as to when to flu season starts…but I got my shot in Oct the sooner the better as it needs time to build up the antibodys. Lanore ;-)

Thankyou, Lanore; I appreciate the advice and guess I am long over due.

With all your illness that you mention so often I am amazed that your doctor is not on top of all these questions you have. Perhaps you need to find new doctors that have your best interest in mind.
