I have never had a flu shot in my life, and I've never had the flu. And before you assume I live the life of a hermit and avoid any contact with humans (or similar), wrong! But I do take all the recommended precautions (e.g.: hand washing, etc.). A couple days ago I finally gave in to the constant warnings on TV, and the constant nagging by family members and got my first flu shot. This morning our paper reports they're running out of vaccine. Did you get your flu shot this year? They're calling it a serious epidemic in Chicago!
Loc: Pinellas Park, Florida
This is the first year in quite a few that I've missed getting a flu shot. Both my wife and daughter are required to have theirs since they are health care professionals, and my granddaughters have had their shots. I haven't had the flu in over 30 years. Once is quite enough, though. Hopefully, I'll get by this year without getting infected.
I've been getting one for the last few years, but then my immune system is strangely compromised (specifically prone to viruses). I got the swine flu a few years ago, and then the norovirus. Very happy to have some potential protection.

I'm like you I never gotten sick in over 10 years . Except for this year which I got the stomach flu the day before new years. The shot would have not prevented that anyway ?
Starting from this year I am planing to get shots , mainly since my new gal works in retail (fine jewelry) so she is always touching other people hands . Be stupid not to get the shots.. Just waiting for one of the stores here who give out shots for dirt cheap like CVS Pharmacies.
