Have You Received Your Flu Shot This Year? - Page 4

I have not received a flu shot since 1991 when it was mandatory for me to do so. I have net ever gotten sick with the flu and I even care for people when they have it and still do not get sick. So I will not get the flu shot.

Year Shot Flu Received Have

Nursing homes should require flu shots for all staff and patients, most older adults say. As flu season swings into high gear, a new poll suggests nursing homes and other long-term care facilities should be doing more to get their staff and patients vaccinated before it's too late. Nearly three-quarters of people over age 50 surveyed in a new poll say all staff in such facilities should definitely be required to get the flu vaccine. More than 60 percent say that patients in such facilities should definitely get vaccinated too. Source 7a.

I agree. If you are caring for a lot of people that may be more vulnerable to the flu than others, you most certainly should get the flu shot. Regardless of whether it happens be effective to that strain, it does boost your general resistance to the flu. Severe cases of the flu are literally lethal, so failure by a health professional to get at least some protection is almost malpractice. I do get the flu shot irregularly, depending on my timing and situation.

I know the hospitals in my area require staff to get a flu shot. I would expect the same from a facility that treats some of the most vunerable.

Year Shot Flu Received Have

I haven't come down with the flu in a long time in spite of not getting the shot. I encourage others to do so, especially if they're constantly around those vulnerable. But I'm not in that situation, and have a naturally strong immune system, so…
