I've had a flu shot every year for the last 20 years. This year, the convienience of the shot hadn't come around yet and the nasty bugger grabbed me with no mercy. Trust me, you don't want to risk getting the flu thats going around. I was in bed for 4 days with a average temp of 102 to 103Â°. Some of the guys at work that have had it missed an entire week of work. I'm still drained and really only back 50%. Don't take the risk of infecting co-workers or family, the flu season is here early and has come with a vengence. For a couple of bucks and absolutely no pain.......... get a flu shot, please. PS. I wanted to post this in the Health Forum but it disappeared while I was sick.
