Well i got no choice in the matter... But we usually get the mist unless they run out then we get the shot which is much better IMO. I get lots of shots yearly so w/e.

i actually administer the flu shot at flu clinics and i still wont get one. i work with the sickest people in the world, litteraly in and out of the best hospitals in the world, and i don't get sick. everyone has a "bad day" here and there but i haven't had a cold in over 3 years.

worst case scenario i get a few days off and catch up on my DVR and some playstation3.

My job requires the shot. I hate them. I think its all bull sh*t. Every year people die from the flu, big deal! Every year people die from car accidents and you don't see Nation Wide panic over that?!? It’s all over hyped and over rated.

I got one when my boy was a baby and I got so sick. We stopped after reading about how it's only the strain of the flu the year before plus all the other crap in it.

Since we stopped getting the shots "kids also" no one has gotten sick in 3 yrs. Knock on wood.....

Nope never get them. My job offers them for free but I respectfully decline. Not scared of needs. Just think my body will build just as good immunity to the flu if I actually catch it.

Yeah I get it every year. Except for the past two years when the option to sniffed the liquid packet was offered instead of the needle. Downfall is you'll be tasting it the rest of the day. hehe.

I get the shot every year, but this year I currently have a soar throat and sinus problem. Been going on for over 1 week. At least it is not as bad as it could be with out the shots.

I agree! Been sick from the shot more than the real flu.

The last time I got one I got so sick that winter I actually welcomed death with open arms. Since then I have not gotten one and have yet to EVER get that sick again. For now I will take my chances.....

Just FYI: As a 21 year AF medic, the flu shot is not so you don't catch the flu, it's to prevent you from catching the deadly strains of flu. I have had the yearly (sometimes twice a year) flu shot for the past 21+ years, and still manage to catch the flu once every 2-3 years or so. Just my $.02
