    My work is mandating the flu shot (medical setting) and was wondering who here gets it. Any reason why or why not?

    Being in your position it probably is a good idea. What about ebola?

    We had several communications on what would happen if we got a patient who had Ebola symptoms.. Working at a Level 1 trauma center, we have a higher chance of getting an Ebola patient. I won't go into the details but its pretty much getting the patient quarantined and wearing approved PPE.

    What about diseases that are making a comeback or coming over the border unchecked?

    I've gotten the flu shot for about the last 5 years, with little or no side effects besides a sore arm. in about 2009, after I spent about 6 days in bed with it, I was done with the f'n flu

    Been getting it for about 15years... and unlike before, never got the flu since then (although this probably just jinxed it)

    I won't get it but I can totally understand someone in the medical field getting it. My Mum gets the shot every year and has been hospitalized for the past 2 years with the flu.

    i was a respiratory therapist when the gay disease started showing up more and more. it wasn't called AIDS yet. people were double gloving and masking up when somebody looked bad.

    ebola is a whole differnt level of scary. it'll be interesting to see how it's contained and how long it takes.

    hints of things to come.



    some years i get the shot, some years i don't. i was at the doc for a check up last flu season, i told the nurse i was going to get a shot. she told me that people who were getting the shot were getting sicker than those who didn't. i didn't get the shot but while driving home i was like :facepalm:. it was an odd thing for her to say and i now take anything she says with a grain of salt.

    I'm allergic to eggs so I don't get the flu shot.
    If the flu doesn't get me, something else will.
    We're doomed. Happy Monday! :)
