I never take them, based on my own notion that it actually makes the virus stronger.

Is this good science or should I start injecting?


I've had them a few times in years past. For me, the flu seemed to get really bad once I hit 40, so I started opting for the shot when I could get it. Whenever I had one, I'd get a bit sick as my system fought off the micro-infection I'd been given, but afterwards, the flu would affect me mildly at best.

I say they're effective. If you're going to be around very young children or people in their 70s+, you might want to consider getting one for their sake, not yours.

I almost always get the shot. Stupid asthma. *grumble grumble* Not going to rely on herd immunity. Too risky.

I'm getting mine tomorrow. We've got a three year old around the house; the flu can be hard on little kids :(
