Curious who all gets the flu shot? Also have you ever gotten the flu with or without the shot that year? I couldn't tell you the last time I got the shot, I'd assume back when I was in school at some point. (knock on wood) Haven't gotten the flu, my wife gets the shot every year and has had it a couple times since we've been together. Of course, she cleans houses everyday so around tons of germs from tons of people, I work with animals so that helps my odds.
