Yes, we all got one. And then I got the flu 2 days later lol. Didn't have enough time to build up immunity I guess.

It seems like this past season was particularly rough. No flu this year here. I've always had the shot because of the military or school and I think I've only had the flu twice that I remember. It was bad though.

Really glad to hear I'm not the only Mom who has decided not to get flu shots again this year.

I was doubting my decision with all the news media hype, thanks for validating my opinion. :-)

I did. I work at an Urgent Care Center and we have been swamped with people with the flu (most of them did not get the flu shot). It totally makes sense to get the shot. Normally February is flu season, but this year it started way earlier. One of the doctors I worked for said only 1% of people that get the flu shot will get the flu. Years ago flu shots did make some people sick because they used a live virus - they don't do that now.
