What factors are involved in making your decision?

Yes .. because I work in a healthcare facility, which requires employees to be vaccinated or else wear a facemask for all of flu season. It is not practical and makes patients nervous to see their providers wearing a mask.

Also, because I take medication that compromises my immune system -- I had influzena in 2009 (After not receiving a flu vaccination b/c I had been pregnant)  -- I'm willing to take the chance that the flu vaccine will prevent me from going through that again.
