Like "Hi All, I have been a type 1 diabetic for 37 years now, and had the flu once in that time. That was enough! I always get a flu shot now, and it usually doesn't even hurt! I think it's well worth it, for the protection!! I got mine at Albertson's already a couple weeks ago, and heard an ad that Safeway also has them, whenever the pharmacist is at the store. Albertson's was slightly less expensive. F.Y.I."
