"Poll question: Flu Shot?"


  

          

Got mine yesterday. I usually get them every year with no problems, like getting sick afterwards. I hear people talk about that but it hasn't happened to me. I also hear people just generally suspicious of the shot.

As for me, I get it every year ... for now.

if you get sick, its not from the flu shot.

that's just not how it works. there are no live cultures at all.

you get sick from something that was not covered by the flu shot..there are so many strains out there...the flu shot is a "best guess" of the most virulent strains for each season...it can't cover them all tho

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

I get the flu shot every year, and like clockwork, about six hours after I get aches, a fever, and shivers. If I pre-emptively take Tylenol it's usually fine. And even if I don't, it's gone the next day. So technically, I'm not sick, but my body reacts as if I am.

It's no reason to not get a flu shot, but I do get a little annoyed when people say it's impossible to get sick from it, without providing that caveat, because then people are more likely to feel deceived if they have a mild immune response and distrust vaccines.

i hear you, and i see a distinct difference between "i got the flu from the flu shot" and "my body temporarily reacted to getting a vaccine"

there's nuance there. i do think its important to make clear that the contents of the vaccine itself aren't live cultures that give you the flu, which is a common concern.

according to her, it made her sick before (which was news to me) but she still gets them for preventive measures. I’ve never had one because I fear the side effects.

the way she described her symptoms
I definitely won’t be get one, lol
I hate being sick...

my sister got hers last week. She's older than me and reasoned that it might give her some protection from the new spike in covid currently happening.

my wife isn't getting one. She said the only time she ever got one, she got sicker than she ever was. So she's out.

Im leaning toward getting one. Im in the middle(older than my wife, but younger than my sister) and im tending to believe my sister's theory more and more. The job is letting us go to get shots at flu stations that will be set up next week so i have a few days to decide.

I’m all for it, it’s just not anything that ever jumps on my radar to go out and do, for some reason. Only year that I got it, it was because my NP was pushing it on me at my yearly physical and they did it right then and there.

I typically never get the flu. I catch two colds a year, and I’ll get the stomach bug about once every 5 years, and that’s about it.

that was about 15 years ago.

i've gotten it the last 5 years or so. before that it was every few years.

I haven't had the flu since the 90s. That one hour was the closet thing.

Never used to get them.

My youngest had a viral infection when she was 1 so we are getting them for now on just to be on the safe side.

Never had the u before I got the shit and haven’t had it yet since the shot.

first time as a adult, i'm pretty sure.
I was hoping for the nasal spray, just wanted to see what that was like, but it seems harder to come by.

Maybe it is now, but it's for use in special cases. I know in 2019 it was very limited.


Some people should *not* get the nasal spray flu vaccine:
•Children younger than 2 years
•Adults 50 years and older
•People with a history of severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of the vaccine or to a previous dose of any influenza vaccine
•Children 2 years through 17 years old who are receiving aspirin- or salicylate-containing medications.
•Children 2 years through 4 years old who have asthma or who have had a history of wheezing in the past 12 months
•People with weakened immune systems (immunosuppression) from any cause
•People who care for severely immunocompromised persons who require a protected environment (or otherwise avoid contact with those persons for 7 days after getting the nasal spray vaccine)
•People without a spleen, or with a non-functioning spleen
•Pregnant women
•People with an active leak between the cerebrospinal fluid and the mouth, nose, ear, or other place within the skull
•People with cochlear implants
•People who have taken flu antiviral drugs within the previous 48 hours for oseltamivir and zanamivir, previous 5 days for peramivir, and previous 17 days for baloxavir.

In addition, the following conditions are precautions to the use of the nasal spray flu vaccine:
•Asthma in people aged 5 years and older.
•Other underlying medical conditions that can put people at higher risk of serious flu complications. These include conditions such as lung disease, heart disease (except isolated hypertension), kidney disease (like diabetes), kidney or liver disorders, neurologic/neuromuscular, or metabolic disorders. “People at High Risk of Developing Flu–Related Complications.”
•Moderate or severe acute illness with or without fever.
•Guillain-Barré Syndrome within 6 weeks following a previous dose of flu vaccine.
