Let's have at it. Some people get them. Some people hate them for various reasons.

I have been getting them for about 10 years now because my Dr. had told me to at some point... can't remember what was wrong with me the firs ttime. But yeah lately with all my less than pleasant health issues I figured it's best just to take it because the flu could be real nasty for a guy like me.

So I got my shot yesterday and, aside from some mild arm pain, I was all fine yesterday. Come in to work this morning and no problems. Then out of nowhere I start to get all light headed and feverish. Then I got all hot and sweaty and said screw that and went home. >_< And a 3 hour nap later nothing has really changed.

Oh well at least I don't have stomach flu symptoms.

Anyone had good or bad reactions to this thing? I'd never had issues 'till now.

I don't know if I've ever had a flu shot. I'd like to get vaccinated against that crazy bird flu though. Is that even possible? I don't know.

The flu shot doesn't kill you and makes you stronger...

But yeah I don't think you can get a vaccine against the avian flu since there isn't a version of it out there that people are at risk of catching. It needs to mutate to an airborn version for that and in that case it would probably be too dissimilar to what's out there for a vaccine made now to work on that. But... I'm not a Dr. so I can't be 100% sure of that.

On another not I have started refering to the avian flu as "the chicken croup"

I'm gonna wish I got a flu shot because I think the girl I'm sleeping with...fine my girlfriend...she is my girlfriend now...has it, but my immune system defeated her bronchitis without so much as a bump in the road. Today I had some green snot and I can sort of feel a lump in my throat. It could go either way.

Congratulations on the girlfriend. Have you told her how old you are yet?

I have had a strange amount of luck with not catching or giving what I had to Janine. But it's not like either of us has had anything too serious. I guess my immune system is good at fighting off cooties.

I get one because apparently I have chronic asthma.

I didn't know this until I was 13 due to my foirst and only attack.

And I haven't used my inhalors since I was 14, and I'm fine.

But I get one anyway.

Have never gotten one, and here's hoping I will never have to get one

the sheet at work talking about the avian flu, states "How can you get it? By coming in contact with an infected chicken or their poo" -_-

Apparently you can't have it if you're allergic to eggs.

Which could be a bonus against bird flu.

? Egg alergy means youy won't get the bird flu? 'cause... if the chicken whipes back to front the egg could have come in contact with chicken feces?

But yeah I saw that on the form I signed the other day I think. Eggs, latex and other things which I'm not alergic too. Bananas wasn't there.

>_< Jesus! That's gross. I expect they're washed then? I hear chicken poo is the smelliest of poo.

Although I didn't really notice the smell in the bird part of your barn... not that I was sitting back and taking in the aroma...

I'm eating an omelette for super...

No, people allergic to eggs can't get the vaccine because it's produced from eggs.

Apparently the only way currently to get avian influenza is to buttfuck a chicken.

Flu shots give you the flu.

Not really. It gives you something which your body reacts to as if it was the flu but it can't infect your cells and replicate so it's not actually the flu.
