Same here. The only flu shot I ever got put me down for a week.
I’ve never had a flu shot. One year when we lived in Michigan, our next door neighbor got the flu shot, and we ran into him when he arrived home from getting the shot. He had the flu within 24 hours, and hubby and our children all had it within days. That ruined me on those shots.
We had swine flu hit our house before it was a big news item. One of our boys caught it from his baseball coach who had gone to Mexico for a weeklong vacation. The flu shot would not have helped.
The two times that I have had a flu shot, I have gotten sick. The worst head/chest colds ever. Not the flu. Yet if I don’t get a flu shot, I don’t get that nasty cold. nor do I get the flu.
I just don’t see an upside to getting a flu shot, so I don’t get them.
Me too. I got the shot twice over a span of four years and got the flu within 2-3 days of each shot. I was told each time, “It is absolutely impossible for you to get flu from this shot”.
Mmm hmmmm. I have had the flu only once since then and it was the Asian flu, which the shot wouldn’t have helped anyway.
I would refuse the shot as well. You just never know where it is being manufactured (China anyone?) or what they are putting in it. The people pushing it will freely say that it is a crapshoot as to what type flu it will cover.
