I don't think the flu shot works for the "Jam Cruise FLU"! :THINK:

Have never trusted the flu shot. I'll take my chances and trust my immune systems. Don't have as much trust in the pharmaceutical companies to keep us healthy, I trust that they are out to make money. Plus, I don't want them to give me the flu and hope its the right strain that goes around this year.

Here's to strong healthy immune systems over the next 102 days and beyond! :DANCE:

I have to agree with Denny on this. I don't get sick much, maybe a cold once a year. Victoria got her flu shot this past Friday, since she works in a medical office and is a student, so gets exposed to a lot of people. She has been sick ever since.

It seems like getting the flu shot, for me, would actually double the amount of times I get sick.

I got my flu shot yesterday too. I also get it from the hospital I work for. Most people who get sick from it are coming down with something anyway so if you feel sick don't get the shot. Also you can be getting sick and not know it an it will exacerbate that.

I worked for USAir for a long time and got pneumonia and the worst flu every year before I started getting the flu shot because I was exposed to so many people flying. So on some level I think it helps. On the other hand two years ago when I was so sick on the ship and got off and was taken straight to the doctor I had the flu shot that year. So who knows.

Just my 2 cents.

I don't do the flu shot either. I get sick when I get off the boat. It's just the way it is. Quitting smoking made this past year a lot better, but I was still sick. I don't think any amount of flu shot is going to protect me when I'm not sleeping OR eating as much as I should on the boat. That's what does it for me. I say wash your hands a lot and try not to breathe in when you hug. (I'm only half kidding) And give yourself a couple of days to recover on the back end.

is there a wook flu shot? :lol:

hubby and I got our flu shots last week. I work in retail (i.e. human petri dish) so I need all the help I can get. I have gotten one the last 2 years and did not get the horrible illnesses that were going around and decimating everyone else.

you can't get the flu from the vaccine since it's not a live vaccine.
