A Hyperbaric Chamber couldn't cure *his* sickness.

I've never gotten a flu shot, and I've never gotten the flu.

That won't be changing now.

I always get the flu shot. Working with children who get sent to school with all kinds of things, I feel it best to protect myself against things like the flu! :)

Getting a flu shot is one of four options I can do to get $40/month knocked off my health insurance premium, so I get it every year. If not for that, I wouldn't waste the money. If the H1N1 shot costs money, then I'm not getting it. I'm sure it'll be like $50 or something so as to feed off of everyone's fears. If so, I think the media should get a cut, since they tried to induce the panic before everyone stopped caring.

No, but a homeless guy down the street keeps telling me about Woodchuck flu and said he'd hook me up with the vaccine so I'll be covered there.

But Cherry is so darn good (especially after I add double the recommended sugar).

Nope, haven't gotten a flu shot since I was about 12 years old. Funny too b/c I got sick every year as a kid. Now that I've built up my immune system, I haven't had the flu since.

I don't believe I have ever had a flu vaccine and I don't plan to start now. I get a cold about once every 1.5-2 years or so. Don't remember the last time Ihad the flu, maybe whne I was a child.
