    How about some more family pressure!! I had the flu once. It was so bad it took 2 months to recuperate. Since then I have never missed having a flu shot and so far, knock wood, it has worked!!!

    My husband and I get the shot, but our daughter does not because of her allergy to eggs. We get it to minimize passing the flu on to her.

    I am not sure if I would give her the shot or not if she were able to get it. I haven’t had to make that choice yet.

    I will be getting to flu shot for me and my daughter. My local Whole Foodsy Pharmacy is administering “Preservative-Free” flu shots. Welcome, the “organic” flu shot! They cost more, but the good things in life do.

    My pediatrician also purchased Preservative-Free flu shots as well. And with the economy being what it is, I cannot afford to be home with a miserable sick kid with a two-week flu. How would I afford all that organic produce?

    And no we didn’t get vaccinated as kids. But we were sick a whole lot more often. Since my mother didn’t work outside the home until I was seven, this wasn’t a major issue. But afterwards it was.

    I am convinced the flu shot works. In the last almost ten years of getting the shot I have only had the flu twice. And since prior to the flu shot I would get it twice a year, this is good enough proof for me.

    p.s. I offer to pay for the flu shot to my staff as well, should they choose to get it. (They are not required to get it.) Even the more expensive “organic” shot.
