Get yer damn flu shot!
Yeah, that's pretty much it. Just a friendly PSA.

Stupid me, procrastinated this year.

"oh, I never get sick".

"meh, I haven't had the flu in over a decade".

I got a damn baby in the house (we did of course have the kids get their shots, they're fine) and what happens? Wham! I'm down like a sack of potatoes for two days straight.

So if you haven't yet, go get the fucking shot, cus the flu is nasty this year.

I never get the flu...... Weeping

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

My work brings in nurses to give it to all its employees free of charge. I got mine back in September.

Sorry you're sick and hope your feeling better soon.

Doing much better now, thanks. Knocked me down pretty hard, but you can't keep a heathen down for long. Thumbsup

I just know too many people (like myself) who put it off. I had to learn the hard way what a bad idea it is. Haven't felt that shitty in a long time.

I haven't had a shot in several years. I should probably get on that.

Same, I fucking hate shots. I can't remember the last time I got the flu either.

I don't remember the last time I got it either. I'm lucky, I rarely get really sick, Not so lucky though cause I always feel like bad regardless. Maybe I'm actually ALWAYS sick, just use to it Tongue
I definitely don't mind needles though.

RE: Get yer damn flu shot!
Just had an epic face book argument over the flu shot last night. Got me steamed like white rice, especially since the individual has a science background and was making very unscientific claims. Of course, her diatribe got several likes, and mine only attained one. =(

Ahhh..science.

People don't realize that there are individuals out there that cannot receive vaccines due to a compromised immune system or even allergies. Getting a flu shot is the best way to protect these people.
