    No,
    I get my flu shot the first week of October. My insurance company won’t pay if less than 365 days since last year’s flu shot.

    The past two years I didn’t get a flu shot and my children did

    Last year my younger son got the flu two years ago my older son got both strains of the flu

    I think the reason I didn’t get it is because I didn’t get the flu ahot

    Most employers, including many of the larger Jewish mosdos, are offering free vaccinations, along with the many of the drugstores and markets with pharmacies (if you have any insurance). Its a no brainer except for the no-brainer anti-vaxers. While the effectiveness varies from year to year, there are virtually no side-effects (except for a sore arm for a few hours) and even a 30-40 success rate is better than nothing.

    I got my flu shot. I was playing with my rifle and accidentally peppered my central heating furnace.

    Chadgadya….Your FLUE is suffering from multiple puncture wounds which often respond well to injections of grey matter (e.g. also know to pharmacists as “duct tape”) to fill the voids.

    I asked my doctor about the flu shot last week. Her answer: “Just like everything else, אחרי החגים !”

    Your health and flu situation is all in the hands of Hashem. We all need to do our part in all aspects of our life-from health to livlihood etc…-but Hashem runs the world %100 not trump and Zuckerberg or Netanyahu etc… They are all just Hashems messengers.

    YOUR health is run by Hashem (a person can have ZERO vaccinations and be the healthiest person around and vice versa a person can have all 35 vaccinations and C”V be sick in bed with serious pains suffering from illnesses R”L.

    turn to Hashem directly for all your needs including any health issues from light to serious. And don’t go to middleman agents. Only Hashem can help you.

    I haven’t gotten the flu shot since 8th grade when I got it and missed almost a month of school (and failed 2 bechinas for high school as a result). May get it this year, depending on what the Misrad HaBriut says about the expected severity this year.

    Sam Klein……I think there is a goyishe sect call Christian Science where adherents forego medical treatment and trust in their notion of “hashem” to prevent and cure all ailments. Yidden DO rely on middlemen (aka doctors, medical researchers and public health workers) who advise on the proper diagnostics and treatment for our well being. Gadolei yisroel themselves routinely seek out the best medical treatment for themselves and their families and advise their followers to do the same. Do we supplement medical advice with tefillah, tzadakah and ma’asim tovim….of course we do. But deliberately ignoring a medical issue or not taking prudent steps to minimize the likelihood of incurring medical problems by regular exercise, proper diet contradicts daas torah (u’shamartem es nafshosechem etc.) and the clear guidance of gadolei yisroel.

    Sam: go troll someplace else.
    And don’t forget to say a tefillah before you take your meds that Hashem should help that it should be for a refuah sheleima. And before you go to your medical or mental health professional, ask Hashem that he should be the correct messenger.

    Sorry Sam “הכל בידי שמים חוץ מצנים ופחים” and I’ve heard it be explained as fever and chills

    I have read that the effectiveness of the flu shot wear down over time so I don’t see the point in getting it so far ahead of flu season.

    @flatbusher
    The prime reason for getting a flu shot in the beginning of autumn is that flu season begins and you may be exposed to those to are early to have flu.
    Secondary reason is some years there is a run on the serum as the season progresses and it may be unavailable when you decide you want a flu shot.
    I typically have my flu shot the first week of October. Two years ago the flu affected great numbers of people and the strain was a bit different than what was expected. In January my doctor suggested a second flu shot of the new serum that had been produced for the prevalent strain. I got the second shot, no flu. Three attorneys in my office all in their 40s laughed at the idea of a second shot, all three got the flu.

    Cant understand why people are still advocating so strongly for flu shots. Still no good effectiveness, and chances of risk. Please please please dont get the multi strain flu shot as it contains Mercury which isnt safe in any amount in the blood. It’s totally a choice, a gamble. Definitely not clear cut that “it works”, or “it’s safe”. Make your choice and don’t blame others who choose to take vitamins c and d daily instead. Flu comes from a vitamin d deficiency (no sun around)

    Last year my doctor urged me to get the flu shot but I didn’t want to. I don’t remember ever having flu, but that year, just for refusing to get the shot :-), I got a severe case of flu which turned into pneumonia. But I don’t regret not getting the shot. When the body overcomes disease it gets stronger.

    I have no doubt that down the road the medical community will come to the realization that too many shots are harmful just like they came to the realization that too much antibiotics weakens the body’s defense.

    I got mine last week. Depending on when the flu hits in my state my Dr. will often advise a second shot and I will willingly get one.

    drmom – “Mercury which isnt safe in any amount in the blood.”

    Do you mean Thermoseal? And Btw, it was never proven dangerous. The gov. took it out because they were scared of the Health Nuts constant screaming about Mercury.

    Since when? What evidence exists that it’s in any way unsafe?

    If you are over 65 (or know someone who is) and find the special 65+ flu vaccine for seniors available, get the shot NOW. They are in very short supply and some locations will not have new shipments of the 65+ injections. The production is limited bvecause it costs more to produce with narrower margns.

    Call me a flu shot anti-vaxxer. Don’t get me wrong, my kids have gotten every vaccine the doctor has recommended, including the flu shot on a few occasions.

    I believe my last flu shot was 13+ years ago. I’ve had 2 cases of bronchitis, several of strep, and a few other equally unpleasant illnesses, but B”H I have not gotten the flu.
