Have you had the flu shot? If not, will you be get­ting one this year?

ROBYN GOR­DON I have the flu shot ev­ery time I go to Amer­ica, which is twice a year lately. I was not able to get the shot that came out in Aus­tralia on the 12th of April as I left the coun­try be­fore then. Take it from some­one who just lost their sis­ter be­cause she did not have a flu shot. GET YOUR SHOT!

SUE PUKALLUS Had the flu shot the past two years and also had a ter­ri­ble case of the flu both years. Not get­ting the flu shot this year...

CH­ERYL ELLERY Yes, booked my­self in for mine al­ready, have been hav­ing them for years but one year thought I would skip one and see what hap­pened as peo­ple were telling me you get the flu any­way. So I skipped one a few years back and ended up with dou­ble pneu­mo­nia, never again will I do that. JEAN CLIFFORD I get mine ev­ery year, never had the flu since. Swear by it.

CLAIRE JOHN­STON I’ve never had a flu shot, and I’ve never had the flu. I work on keep­ing my im­mune sys­tem in A1 con­di­tion. If you have a com­pro­mised im­mune sys­tem then per­haps you should con­sider hav­ing a flu shot. LUKE DART I don't be­lieve it works so won't be both­er­ing.
