    Fair enough. Does everyone in your family typically get a flu shot or do you know?

    Yes. My siblings and parents get one every year. My wife's dad and step-mother get one every year as well. Her siblings get it every year as well. Her mom & step-dad have said they aren't getting it. We've told them that's fine, but they can expect extremely limited interaction with the baby for the first few months.

    Yeah I feel like with flu shots it goes in groups like that. A family either does or doesn't for the most part.

    Agreed. For me, there's no down-side to getting the flu shot.

    1000 times THIS! Same with ADHD! Communication, Internet, and social media have magnified these disorders that have been around for years. I am not trivializing these disorders, just saying we now have awareness to provide accomidations. And that's a good thing.

    How would you feel if you passed the flu to your parents, grandparents, or even a grandchild with asthma and they died? Anybody can get the flu. Most don't die from it, but some do.
    I realized I didn't respond to the second part of your post. I don't worry about passing it on to anyone. I just assume if someone is worried about getting the flu they need to get the vaccine.

    Also Vaxxed was directed by the same doctor that was caught making up the initial research, if my information is correct. There couldn't be a more biased or untrustworthy source than a guy that blatantly lied about the issue.

    That's awful to hear. Maybe the shot caused her sickness, but I'd guess she most likely had a virus when she got the flu shot.

    What about young infants that aren't old enough to get the vaccine yet? No concern there if you got the flu and passed it on to them?

    Could be, the side effects of the flu vaccine can be pretty rough. She had a reaction at the injection site, so the guess was side effects.

    Nope. I'm almost never around a young infant and when I am I don't handle them.

    Can I ask, is there any particular reason you opt against the flu vaccine? (I totally get it if you just want to keep the answer to yourself.)
    I've never gotten the flu vaccine. I also haven't gotten the flu in 15+ years. Girlfriend is required to get it and in 3 years she has gotten the flu twice.

    Doesn't seem worth it to me.
