Flu shots – yay or nay?

I have never had a flu shot in all of my 52 years, but this year I am contemplating getting one for many reasons.


One, I work in the public field, around coffee and food, every day.  I am sure no one wants their server coughing and hacking all over their coffee and food!  Second, my parents are older, and I certainly don’t want to get sick and have them get sick because of me.


I am not someone who gets sick very often, but if I can do something to hopefully prevent that from happening, then I will.  In my awesome home country of Canada, flu shots are free.   Are they free in your country?  How much are they if you have to pay?  Do you get the flu shot?

    To be honest it seems that the flu shots maybe “backend loaded”. They must had produced this earlier in order for it to be administered. But how will they have the latest strain that is yet to come?

    My wife and I have been getting annual flu shots for the last 15 years and we’ve not had the flu once in all that time. During the first 5 years of getting the shots I working in one of the unhealthiest environments – a high school. They work. This year’s shot contains a particularly awful strain that hit Australia during their winter this year – coming our way!
