I dont ever really get sick, but in the military we would have to suck that crap up our noses quite often, and after becoming sick as heck the first two times i learned to fake inhale and snot rocket that junk out my nose seconds after...not for me, ill stick to herbal remedies and eating oranges because im the best effin MD that ever lived.

Never had a flu shot, not planning on getting one this year either. Sometimes I wonder if those shots do more harm than good...

I'll get one. My opinion is that it can only help. Especially if you work around kids or have any kids of your own.

You don't get sick after the shot, if you get sick it was because you already had the virus in your system. Your arm might hurt for a few days but that's about it.

I've never got the flu shot ever, nor have I had the flu for the past two years. Here's hoping for three in a row.

And yeah, I'm becoming increasingly scared of needles.

I have swine flu right now. To be honest, it's not that bad, it's a lot like the normal flu except without the nausea and vomiting. I mean it sucks to be sick, but I've felt much worse past times I've had the normal flu... It has given me a bad cough though, and I still smoke like 2 cigarettes a day cuz I'm retarded. Never got the shot though, and I don't really care it would have just been a hassle.

I probably have the worst immune system here, never had any flu shots (or any other shots to prevent illness, for that matter) and have never gotten the flu.

YouTube - Woman Disabled by THIS YEARS FLU SHOT (10 days AFTER vaccination )

see, this is why you don't take the flu shot. I can just imagine how many people are going to end up like her after taking the swine flu shot.

I think the ridiculous media hype over the swine flu is just plain wrong. Government folks literally scare people into getting this flu shot so they can rake in the cash they get from their Tamiflu stocks going through the roof. Its disease for profit..

Yeah I can imagine how many people too: almost none. There is some risk involved in any activity. I'm sure I can find one individual case that proves, using your logic, that crossing the street or eating breakfast can be dangerous but that doesn't mean that there is a high probability of catastrophe if you do those things.

Not that I'm saying everybody should run out and get the flu shot, I'm just saying that people should make their decisions for logical reasons instead of basing them on an extremely poor grasp of probability.
