Had the flu for the first time in my 37 years over Christmas break. It turned into pneumonia. I have never had a flu shot as I never get sick with anything, but will be sure to get one from here on out if it will prevent me from feeling like that again! Thought I was dying.

The regular seasonal flu shot is “intramuscular” which means it is injected into muscle (usually in the upper arm). It has been used for decades and is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people, people with chronic medical conditions and pregnant women. Regular flu shots make up the bulk of the vaccine supply produced for the United States.
The high-dose vaccine is for people 65 and older which also is intramuscular.
The intradermal vaccine is for people 18 to 64 years of age which is injected with a needle into the “dermis” or skin.


Are you sure you can't get the flu shot? You can't get sick from the flu shot, that's just a myth...but if your doctor doesn't recommend it for some other reason then I understand.

What is the deal with the flu this year? I heard something on the radio about it having killed a bunch of people under the age of 18 or some shite.

I would tell you to search Web MD for some remedies, but it'd probably cause your Netscape browser to crash and burn

I've been sick all week. Not sure if it is flu or what the heck it is. Started with a sore throat and runny nose. Then just an monumentally stuffed nose followed by water faucet nose.

Hoping it doesn't move to the chest but that is usually the next step.

No fever or at least i don't feel like it, but I do feel run the hell down.

I haven't ever gotten the flu shot. Haven't had the flu since I was 10 or something. I am the type to not go to the doctor unless I am dying. I have a staple gun and staples for cuts, and normally just put super glue in them. Only thing I really take is Ibuprofen. Unless you are a baby or geriatric, you don't need immunizations


In the past two years, I have known 7 people that have almost died because of infections that they got while in the hospital

This may be legit...

Guillain-Barré syndrome

Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is a rare variant of GBS.

Some cases may be triggered by the influenza virus, or by an immune reaction to the influenza virus.

It's this backwards way of thinking that some people like you have that's causing some previously very rare and almost extinct illnesses to resurface. There are very few reasons why you shouldn't get a flu shot. (The OP seems to have a legit reason)
