Umm, I think I'd like to see a citation on that one. I think you probably misinterpreted whatever you saw on the news.
I don't get the flu shot because I've never had the flu, I'm not in one of the populations that has a lot to fear from the flu, and I'd rather not mess around with my organism more than necessary. Irrational maybe but that's what I'm going with.
But I don't think it's a bad idea to get one, and I may start getting it when I join the ranks of the old and/or infirm.
