Yes, I've been getting the flu shot for about 9 years now since I almost died from one terrible flu the year before that. The mucus was so thick in my lungs that I couldn't cough it up much or barely breathe. Also I had to sit up to try to sleep. Nothing to fool around with. There have been growing flu cases here since December and going across the country. I think they said on the news that it's one of the worst ones that is included in our vaccine this year. Happy to have the shot. Haven't had the flu since I started the vaccinations, thankfully.
I had no side effects from the vaccination or Tetanus shot but my Hubby and Daughter had the sore arm muscle from the flu shot.
Like Nel, I had the Tetanus shot in the Spring when I hit my head and needed 7 stitches. They offered, I received. :o)
