I had always done well with the seasonal flu shot...

January 12, 2021 01:09PM
....for about 10 years... regular. No reactions of any kind. Then, about 15 years ago, I got sicker after a flu shot than I had ever been in my life. There was a solid 4 days of suffering that I will never forget. It scared me away from getting the flu shot for 15 years. Nope... wasn't gonna chance it. I'd rather deal with the seasonal flu than whatever that was that they injected me with.... until 2020. I couldn't get around the idea that I didn't want to catch covid, and then catch the seasonal flu on top of it. So, I got the flu shot. No reactions of any kind. Not sure what I'll do next flu season. confused smiley
