I got mine! It appears the vaccine this year is the combination of flu and swine flu where previous years were separate. I had no side effects from the shot other than insisting to my wife that I was unable to help with housework for a couple days. I thought it sounded good in theory but didn't get me out of anything as hard as I tried. :)

I took flu shot last year because Jem was afraid her lowered immune system couldn't fend off the flu if I got it. To help her feel safer I got the regular flu shot. They had run out of the H1N1 shot so I avoided that. Jem got both shots and seemed none the worse for it. Neither of us had the flu of any strain last year. Nor had I gotten the shot the previous year when I was mostly by myself and didn't get the flu then either.

This season, since it's just me now, I think I'll go back to my usual routine of not getting the flu shot.

I always take the flu shot because I used to get so sick every year before i started taking them.

I always take vaccines, flu, pneumonia, whooping cough, everything my doctor recommends. After all, I'm one of the ones with "underlying medical conditions" that is often killed by viruses and bacteria that "regular" people can perhaps fight off. My uncle also had polio, and I've seen the photos of him in his iron lung and the dozens more behind him in a row. And watched him suffer with post-polio which finally took his life. I know there may sometimes be adverse reactions to vaccines, but I'm glad I don't have to live in a world without them.
