    I got them in the military (mandatory) and they always made me sick,Does anyone here get them and do they make you sick ??
    I hated getting flu shots. One time around 1998 I got the flu shot, yellow fever and tyfoid shot the same day and thought I was going to die, good lord that was awful.

    Yes I do...Have for a lot of years. I had the flu in 1776...BAD..For over a week I firmly believe I was "TO SICK TO DIE". No problem since then, with the shots. My daughter tells me as soon as they get it in and I'm the first one in...:p

    I never miss a year, except one about 4 years ago. Ended up in the hospital with the flue. I don't miss them any more!

    Got sick way back when with Military-mandated the darn things. Now, no problems with the shots and no flu either.
    for me...shot is worth it.

    I do not, although my kids do.

    If it's something I can survive and pass the genetic solution to the next generation I'm all good to catch the flu.
