    Never, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone, either.
    Do some research....do you KNOW what they put in the shots? Mercury (VERY toxic), aluminum (great way to get Alzhiemer's), MSG, human aborted fetal apparatus (fetal tissue) (no kidding), along with other substances that are know carcinogens....google toxins in flu shots....get educated....see how many people have gotten sick after getting one (my sister got one and was sick for months, she hasn't had one since). It's absolutely insane in the US that a child by 2 years has over 24 shots! They do nerve damage, autism rates have gone sky high, research for your health.
    Peace to you and yours.

    I'd rather get sick and die from it. Cause that's what people want from me, and there's no point in stayin alive. tomb

    Already done, annual ritual. My sister had a kidney transplant so it was more for her sake. She died two days ago but I live in a building with other people who are classed as at risk, so I shall carry on. Only had a day of 'feeling funny' when I got the 1st one about a decade ago.

    I would rather get the flu and build up the antibodies...I have no health problems..
    and would just rather deal with it...I don't one person who has ever gotten a flu shot, and did not get sick with the flu anyway, or have some adverse reaction...So, No thank you..

    The antibodies will only work on what particular STRAIN you've came down with, like the common cold, so you're susceptible to the next pandemic.

    One curious fact about the Spanish Flu (1918) was that when you plot mortality by age, there was the expected peaks for the young & old but with this one, there was a peak right in the middle.

    Killed just over 1% of the world population, so, if one like that hit the States, there'd be 3-4 million dead, a 100 time the normal count.

    Terrorism only killed 33 in the past year, for comparison.

    My Mother had a severe reaction to a flu shot her employer forced on her once, years and years ago, she was so out of it, she was hallucinating, and completely oblivious to what was going on around her for a full day. She's never had one again, and I've never wanted to chance it, either.

    I have mine already. More people die from the flu with relatively few getting side affects. Young children and the elderly should get one every year. If everyone got the shot we wouldn't have to worry about this deadly flu going around this year.

    They put a dead virus in you which is better than getting the live virus.

    Wow!, I really hope you didn't get a flu shot with so little knowledge.

    There are different strains of the flu. Accordingly, there are different strains of flu vaccinations. For example, several years back, the bird-flu virus vaccine was created to address concerns about the Asian/Bird-flu virus.

    Oh Wow!!! I'm glad I listened to my Dr. and not you.

    I'm not giving medical advice, but you should be informed about what manufacturers are putting in the medicines and vaccines they make.

    You're describing the Salk method, using non-viable bugs. She's more concerned about about what else is in it. Refuse to believe that they'd use mercury. One thing that is used is albumen as they're cultured in eggs so folks with allergies need to be worried.
