I had the flu shot in October. - I don't have a choice. I am a believer in the vaccine. It is not a guarantee. We have had a very mild winter and very little flu. Winter is still nonexistent but the flu is alive and well. I am exposed to it all the time being a hospital nurse. I went to bed feeling fine around 11 pm woke up at 2:30 feeling like I got hit by a Mack truck. Took some NyQuil and trying to get back to sleep. Several local elementary schools have closed around here because of rampant flu. At least it wasn't last month around my Vegas trip.
