I don't get the flu shot despite the fact that I am in the target group who NEEDS the protection (low immune/asthmatic/autoimmune disease).

1- Every year I have gotten the flu shot except one I have gotten the strain of flu that I was vaccinated for. I did not get the flu until 8-12 weeks after the shot.

2- Every year I've gotten the flu I have ended up sick right after the shot with flu like symptoms.. why feel like crap twice? 105-106 fevers are nothing to joke about.. and I get them EVERY TIME I get it.

3- I've NEVER had the flu on a year I didn't get the shot.
