Just two people’s opinions – Sue’s and mine – No way Jose! The only time in recent memory she ever got a flu shot was the only time she got the flu. Me personally, I take a flu antigen (very, very small dose) but it worries me. I would not take the flu shot. HOWEVER, as Sue says this is a tough decision because she is a school nurse and knows how quicly the viruses spread across a school. Her other comments: Do you have a relative who could take your kids if they get sick so you are not as direcly exposed? It is a live virus and you know how well we AA types do with live viruses. But then, finally, if you doctor is someone you trust and you have worked with him/her a long time than he/she probably is thinking about all these issues before making the recommendation. There, I have successfully covered alot of base and stay with my original thought – No Way Jose!
