Didn’t work.

>:( :'(
Last year I got my shot, then I got the flu, then I got double pneumonia. Got my shot again this year. Free at Walgreens for people in the VA system.

Got my shot almost a month ago. Happened to be at the doctor's office because they wanted to test my poop. They offered to give me the shot there and then, and they had the high-dose quad-valent available, so I got it. Even if it doesn't work every year, it's free, it doesn't hurt (the shringrix vaccine hurt a lot) and statistically I'll be better off if I get it every year. I was concerned that it was a bit early, but the nurse said she had already gotten hers, and that cases have been reported.

The weird thing is, since I started getting the flu shot every year I seem to get fewer colds.

I also think that my particular version of hydrotherapy (paddling on the ocean and swimming in it) makes me healthier.  ;)

Got mine on the first of oct. I have heard that this year's match is not that good.

I'm in the unvaccinatable immunocompromised portion of the population who thanks all of you for helping to delay transmission, even if you don't have immunity.

Not had a cold in twenty+ years. Faithful in getting my flu shots. Correlation alert.
