I had all of my kids get the flu shot this year. Each one of them has been diagnosed with the flu. I heard the flu shot wasn't very effective this time around. Anyone know how that could be?

When they make the annual batch of flu shots, they make an educated guess as to which strains will be most prevalent that year and inoculate against those.  Apparently this year they were less accurate in their projections.

Obviously! How horrible. I mean, so many people that I know have gotten so sick. Next year I am skipping the flu shot. I am not making the kids get it either.

That's a personal decision.  I didn't bother getting the flu shot for years myself.  I get it regularly now (and get it for the kids) because I'd rather have the partial protection than none.  Some years they are much better than others.

This year I have been okay and we got our shots I think in October. It seems odd though, while I have not had the flu I have had some days where I just felt horrible. Last night was a great example of it, trying to sleep was just a pure nightmare. I woke up a bunch and had night sweats. Either I am starting menopause early or I am sick again. :o

I got my daughter the flu shot just once and she was so sick afterwards that I decided to never do it again. My doctor is really big on giving me the lecture on getting the flu shot for myself since I have asthma, but I've told her that I would rather take my chances. I hardly ever get sick, so I'm not that worried about it.

I don't get one.  I've gotten the flu twice after having had the shot, so I don't bother any more.  

If I start feeling flu-ish I begin high doses of C and D3, push fluids.
