Flu season is coming up. Have you gotten your shot? Do you plan to?

Here, flu shots are only recommended for the elderly and people who could get very ill because of the flu. I don’t fall in that category.

I’m fully vaccinated against COVID, and around OCT 1, we’ll be getting our flu shots. I always wait until the beginning of October so the flu vaccine gives me maximum coverage for the flu season.

I get my flushot every year before winter. I move around in public a lot.

I’ve never gotten a flu shot. Maybe I should start.

They say during this pandemic, because of all the social distancing, masks and hand washing some strains of the flu may have gone extinct.

Not availble here for another few weeks, but I’ll be getting it. I’m booked for my first Shingrex shot next week.

I completed my Shingrix vaccine about a year ago. Got sick after BOTH shots. Fever, chills, flu-like stuff. It lasted 2 or 3 days on both shots. Forewarned is forearmed.

Still better than having Shingles.

No argument on that from here. But it missed the point. I was just trying to alert you of side effects, not argue a way out of getting the vaccines.

I’ve never had a flu shot, but I have had the Covid vaccine. Maybe I’ll start looking into getting the flu jab…

I signed up for a clinical trial that will combine the flu shot with a covid booster. Still waiting to see if I get accepted.

I was at my veterinarian’s yesterday to get my dog’s vaccines updated and he told be he recently got his Shingrix vaccine and had the same experience. @velociraptor is correct though. My mom is a nurse and from what she told me those side effects are preferable to getting shingles.

My parents got their Shingirx shots and both were fine, other than a sore arm.

Every jab I get seems to knock me on my back. I’m used to it at this point.

I already said this earlier, so I’ll repeat myself.

I AM IN NO WAY ARGUING IT’S BETTER TO HAVE SHINGLES THAN SHINGREX. SHEESH.
