Obummer is that you checking up on us? Just kidding. I intended to get the shot because I work with a bunch degenerate students who don't wash their hands. I kept putting it off for one reason or another, and then the news broke that they guessed wrong this year, so I didn't bother. I have not had the flu so far (knock on wood).

There's an essential piece of information that's missing. Exposure to others.

Someone who isn't around many people or who doesn't visit public places isn't likely to catch a flu, with or without a shot.

Someone who works in the public sector like a school or office building where they comes into physical contact with many people is far more likely to catch one.

For the last 20 some odd years, I got the flu shot every year. and I got the flu every year.
The 2013 - 14 flu season I actually got 3 flu shots due to an error. 1) seasonal flu shot, then tried to get the swine flu shot, but they messed up and gave the seasonal shot again, then 3rd time got the swine flu shot. Then got the flu! Had a terrible horrible case of the flu.
This year I forwent the shot , no flu.
I think I will forgo the flu shot for a few years to see how I do. :)
