Just a quick post... Should one get the flu shot? Yes? No? Thoughts..? I have only had the shot once and came up with the flu 3 week later. So...?

Yes, everyone should get a flu shot. This epidemic we are having is because they haven't. The virus in the shot is a "killed" virus which means it is dead and it cannot cause the flu. You may have contracted a different strain than the shot was prepared for - which can happen as they have to guess ahead of time which strains might spread and gear the shot to them. If strain develops that they did not include, then you could get that one. This year,the shot is covering most of what is going around. So please, get one!
