Default Flu Shot

Hey everyone, did you get the Flu Shot this year?? I have been trying to get one since November, but none of the clinics or Drug Stores have any of the vaccine in. I have a Dr. appt coming up in February and will see if I can get one then, but perhaps it will be too late? Now here in Canada we are all starting to worry about the Corona Virus! With one case in Vancouver and two in Toronto. Keeping our fingers crossed that it will not cross over the water and come here to Vancouver Island, but I think it is just a matter of time. Have any of you heard of any cases where you live?

Trudy, I got my flu shot last fall when they first released it. Hope you can get one. I heard that they are working on one for the Corona Virus. I know what you mean about being concerned about it. I am due for the new pneumonia booster.

There were 3 suspected cases here in Michigan that turned out not to be the coronavirus. A fourth case is still awaiting results. Detroit Metro Airport just started screening passengers from China, a little behind other major airports in the US.

My ex-husband's cousin just returned to China from a vacation in Thailand (her husband has worked there for the last 6-7 years) and they are currently legally required to wear masks when out in public. All public venues are closed, some grocery stores are still open. He was supposed to go back to work on Monday but that might get put off for another week.

I have only taken one or two flu vaccinations in my life. If I'm at the doctor's already when it is available I get it, but if not I don't make a special trip. I have only had the flu once in my life, about 20 years ago, so I consider myself very fortunate.

I don't get the flu shots. I have a genetic variation that makes me not handle them well, so I take a pass. I am not an anti-vaxxer, I just can't take that one.

AZK wow you have been so fortunate to not have had the flu many times in your life!! My biggest concern is passing it to our elderly parents, mine have passed but my hubby’s are still alive and we see them often!

Luckily I have never had the flu ... when I was still at school, I often had a bad cold and I took a vaccine against respiratory infections ... that helped ...
I have never been vaccinated for flu ...
The flu is in the country but it is not yet an epidemic ...

There are no cases of Corona virus in Belgium yet ... but it is spreading fast ...

We get offered flu shots from the age of 60, and this year i expect my first call, usually October or November. You can get the vaccin yourself and take it to the doctor for the shot yourself but i have never done that.
The corona virus is scary

I haven't gotten a flu shot in a long, long time. While I was being treated for Lyme, I couldn't get one because my immune system was totally haywire. I have only been"stable" for the last year. I was going to get one this year and then I didn't and now I don't know if it is worth it or not. I am not out in public a lot of the time. However, my DD has a new internship at a preschool 2/days a week. She already is concerned that she will get sick a lot. I should encourage her to get hers ASAP.

As for Corona, I flip between being worried and not worried. Right now, I am not worried but talk to me in a few hours
