Never have dandl. Funny thing about the flu shots that I can tell, is that everytime my dad and my father in law got their shots, they got the flu.

You have to be at least 65 here in Oz to get the flu shot for free, I've been getting mine for 4 years. The first 2 years I got the flu worse than ever. Last year and this year I've been flu free, and the flu has been rampant here.

I know this isn't a computer related issue but their are a lot of myths that surround the flu shot. I haven't missed a yearly flu shot for over 10yrs now, yes sometimes it can make one feel a little bad and it isn't totally foolproof against getting the flu but it does help in fighting the severity, even if the strain is different from what the shot covers. If I get the flu, I will usually have a very bad case of pneumonia, and I surely do not want to go down that road again.
I posted this because this is the time to get the flu shot so it can rev up the old immune system to recognize the virus when it comes knocking at your door. I know the flu shot is not for everybody but for the ones who can take it, it could be a very effective way to deal with a very serious illness. Daniel.

You're correct dandl. People that can gt the flu shot should get it. In a couple years down the road I'll probably be getting it too. But as for right now, you can ask Jim, Claw's a hard headed son of a gun, always pushing it to the limit.
