We never get flu shots...we suffer it...and the flu gets tired that nobody is scared of it, and runs away.

@amadeo ... I am saying, we have never taken flu shots...NEVER. We do have flu attacks, and we take antibiotics then, and then we are alright.

Oh, that will be a lovely trip!! You will be prepared if you get your glasses adjusted a bit. I never get a flu shot and I have never had the flu. There is an active immune response which accounts for the resistance of certain people getting sick, so I am one of those according to my doctor.

@amadeo Yes, I think our immune systems get weaker as we get older. Eventually, I will get that flu shot every year just in case.

Lake Como sounds like an exciting place to visit. Will it be warm there? Never got the flu shot.

No, it's not warm right now (I am 5 Km from Lake Como), but usually it's not too bad in October, we can expect an average temperature of 18/20 degrees Celsius.

I had the flu last year despite having the flu jab. I'll have this year's jab on Saturday. Husband has a compromised immune system, so it's better to be safe ... I tend to get ill far more often than he does!

My two younger kids have gotten their flu shot. I need to get my daughter in to get hers done but I might wait till January for her to get it at her check up. Both me and my husband will get ours when we find time to do so.

@amadeo thank you! I think shots are very important sure maybe not all are required but a flu shot could help keep you fro getting the flu or lesson how bad you get it.

I haven't got the flu shot yet, but I always do get it. I never get the flu. My kids hax the flu when they were young. It was terrible. The hospital was full, I just had to sit with them, giving sips of water, wiping their bodies, and watching them burn up and struggle to breathe. I' ll take the flu shot over that!

@amadeo the remote possibility that the amount of the given flu one is trying to avoid is not purely contaminated with any metals made to bind the serum . . .
