I am really skeptical about the flu shot in general. Here in Ireland a few years ago there was panic about the H1N1 bird flu and people were urged to get vaccinated, particularly children. Shortly afterwards, there was a rise in narcolepsy cases in vaccinated children. It hasn't necessarily been proven, but the stories and some statistics are worrying. The way people were frightened and encouraged to get the vaccine, and the pharmaceutical company making loads of money in supplying it...and then finally, no outbreak whatsoever of this "killer bird flu pandemic", I think you really have to weigh the benefits and risks...
