Depends on your immunity. No one in my immediate family is very susceptible to it. My mom got it last month(she was under extreme stress) and it only lasted for 3 days, with much milder symptoms than the people around town had.
Not going to get a virus injected into me. Not worth it.
Funny thing, none of us had birth vaccines either - I wonder if our strong immune systems have anything to do with that.
Nope, no flu (or any other) vaccination for me. I seem to have an immunity system that could kill small animals by itself. Last vaccination that I had was 3 years ago, I was working overseas and the company required I get a cholera vaccination and guess what? I got sick.

Don't believe in them and never had one. They do more harm than good in my opinion. Not to mention having to stand in line with other people who are prone to getting sick or are already sick. That sounds like a great way to combat spreading disease.
Fear mongering is a great way to make money. Some people are more susceptible to the propaganda than others.
We immunize for the major diseases in our house but not the flu. I've had a flu shot once or twice but I didn't notice any better sickness evasion than without it so I don't bother anymore. I don't have a spleen so it's recommended I get the shot but I don't.
There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton
