What is your opinion on flu shots?  Will you be getting one for yourself and/or for your kids?

Here is a link to the governement's page on the flu vaccine if you are looking for more information:

I don't do shots at all, so I don't do flu shots.

I have read that those who get the flu shot are more likely to get the flu. As an anecdote, my husband used to get the flu shot every year before I met him. He would also get the flu every year.

I convinced him not to get the shots, showing him the research I had done. He hasn't gotten the flu since...
