When I had the flu in 2019 I went to a little walk-in rapid md down the block from my parents where I lived at the time. We all went together because we all got sick with whatever bug that was. It was classified as the flu by the doc we saw there. As far as the childhood vaccinesâ€¦ I have those all because you have no choice but to take them to attend school. Iâ€™ll probably be doing the same to my soon born daughter and future kids so they can attend school also. But now as an adult I have a choice. I just really donâ€™t feel obligated to take this Covid vaccine at this time.
FYI DaGawd Iâ€™ve never gotten a flu shot in my life. I might start, especially if it becomes an annual cocktail with covid updates.
It could be my constitution, but I have not had a cold or the flu in 30 years or so. I donâ€™t take it for granted, but it also contrasts sharply with how I regarded covid. I got my vaccination immediately upon availability, because covid is unpredictable and if things go badly youâ€™re very easy damaged for life or even six feet under. I never felt that way about the flu and went about my business my whole life without get a shot. Just sharing this because I really do believe anyone who does not have any medical complications preventing them should take their covid shots
