The Flu Shot

Has anyone got there's yet? I have, and i don't like it.

At my work you they give it to you for free. I thought AWESOME. I don't have to pay....YAY

It hurts really bad!!! Not the actual shot part about it. But the next couple of days. I have never had one before and I don't know if I will get another one. My arm swelled up like you wouldn't believe. It has been three days now. And it is still all swollen. and I had flu like symptoms all weekend. Not fun!!!!

When my daughter was 2 she got the Influenza. I never knew how serious it was until I got a little older and started hearing about all the kids that dye from it. She was in the hospital for 9 days days from it. Some of my worst 9 days I have ever had!!

I have made sure the past couple of years that she got the shot, so something like that will never happen to her again. But I have never had one till now.

I hear that not everyone is a candidate to get it though, and i have a feeling I am one of those people.

Even so it is better to get one then not.

Influenza is not something that you want to have to worry about.

My work does them for free, too. I've never gotten one and don't plan to. Before they were saying that only high risk people should get it, meaning kids, the elderly, anyone who wouldn't be able to handle the flu. Now they suggest everyone gets it, but I refuse. When I get the flu, I only get it for a day. I just think my reaction (Biologically or behaviorly) would be worse. (I really hate needles, too.)
