I am starting to see signs everywhere for the flu shots now being available. I have NEVER had a flu shot, and never really seen a need to get one since I am a healthy 22 year old male. Every flu season I do get sick about twice but it's never bad... just like a head cold and mild fever lasting a few days. HOWEVER, for the first time ever last year I got a full-blown case of influenza. I was low on sleep, low on eating, and high on stress because it was finals week with some really hard classes... and I think that sparked it so badly. I had a 103 fever, couldn't get out of bed, sore body, headaches, barely able to breathe, etc... it was a fucking nightmare with bad symptoms lasting 4 days and annoying symptoms lasting nearly 2 weeks. Due to this I am heavily considering getting the shot. My doctor says I don't "need" it, but I figure since I am in high disease places daily (gym, school, chicago public transportation buses and trains, and work) it might be beneficial as a backup. Seeing as most people here are healthy and in the age range that doesn't necessarily suggest a flu shot; do you guys still get them?
