As far as the shot, No ****ing Way...I hate needles.
I don't get the flu very often. Back in the day, when we HAD to get one, I got sick every time.
I may get a minor cold now and then. I am interested to see what happens this Fall & Winter since I've stopped smoking. I believe I will not have that lingering sniffle and cough this year.
My motto is: Just Say No To Needles!!!!
