Flu Shot?

I just got back from getting a flu shot at Walgreen's (less wait time than at the Dr's office). I was just wondering how many subs do this (he said there was another sub in there yesterday). I explained to him that we don't get paid for sick days, and I have a long-term sub job coming up. Really don't want to risk having to get a sub for the sub.

And what about the H1N1 vaccine coming out in October? Anyone consider getting that also?

I am very needle phobic, so this was a big deal for me to get in there and get it done.

My mom suggested the other day that I get the H1N1 shot so I can stay healthy enough to sub for all the teachers who get sick.

That said, I probably won't bother. I've never gotten a flu shot, and I've never had the flu. I'll just keep on eating well, exercising, and washing my hands a lot.

I have gotten a regular flu shot the last couple of years, although last year I got the flu anyway . (I'm wondering if it was the H1N1 Swine Flu, but I didn't go to the doc. to find out).

I probably won't get the H1N1 shot.

I follow alternative medicine, so I don't get any vaccines of any kind.

My dietary habits (raw foods daily, no processed foods, no carbonated beverages, enough sleep, liquid vitamins) keep the immune system strong enough to resist viruses.

Grav-def - Wow I can't believe you've never gotten the flu-- you are so lucky!

I have rheumatoid arthritis and have to take immune-reducing medication, so I get sick quite often. Just washing hands/eating differently isn't enough although it can help. My body is just weaker that way. You are truly blessed if you don't get sick.

I haven't ever had any flu shots either. That's NOT to say that I don't get sick of ever had the flu. Just not a fan of needles.
