    Lie.
    Tell em' you got the shot.
    Go to Walgrens, get a receipt for something, tell em' you bought the shot.
    Photoshop someone else's receipt.

    Flu shots are a pharmaceutical gold mine.
    The flu kills OLD people and the immunocompromised. It doesn't kill people that go to work for a living and are up walking around.

    So play the game until a LOT of years go by that will prove that the flu shot ain't what it's supposed to be.
    Yes, it does. I am working for a living, and I am up walking around but if I were to get the flu, I can guarantee that I would have a tube shoved down my throat to keep me alive. I am not immunocompromised.

    And if you do anything you suggested, you should be fired.

    I don't know if you are a blatant liar or just clueless, but your statement above is patently false.

    Sure, the flu takes more of the vulnerable old and very young, but young healthy people also become seriously ill, and sometimes die. My D had a very healthy college classmate who got influenza and had to be intubated. That prior elite athlete eventually died from influenza.

    The Pandemic Flu epidemic of 1918 killed millions of people all over the world. The most likely to die were young healthy people who "worked for a living" and were "up walking around." What in the world would make you think being employed grants a person some kind of immunity from disease?!?

    You went to nursing school? I'm sad for you and your patients.

    Wow. This has to be one of the worst things I've heard from a nurse. What else would you lie about?

    Please don't ever let this person be the one taking care of me or someone I love.
