Are you getting a flu shot this year? I'm diabetic and at my dr visit yesterday he gave me one....so YES...

If you have kids are they getting the flu shot this year? yes-we have to make an appointment next week for him to get it.

Are you concerned about BIRD FLU (avian flu)? yes not panicing but it's certainly gotten my attention....It's something to be concerned about and something to "watch for" more news/info on....

Nope, when I was in high school we had to get them no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

No, I personally don't believe in them if you have a healthy immune system.

Heather, I feel the same way. I have a healthy immune system as well as my little ones and DH, so I feel we should be able to fight it ourselves. I may get a little cold here and there, but have only had the flu once, years ago. Pam
