    Just got mine. Missed the flu shot van at the school.
    Does your community provide free flu shots at the schools and/or Town Hall?

    Got mine in September. You could say the military is kinda of "militant" about getting the flu vaccine...

    I have NO idea. It's only been my community for a year, so I'm still learning about it. I'm leaning towards no, I don't think so, though. Folks in general in this town are different. Don't like to be told what to do by Big Brother, Big Pharma, or Big Soap.

    Actually, many in my town could be poster children for this thread. Lots of conspiracy theorists.

    We have vans outside of all 3 public schools, we are pretty lucky.

    A local pharmacist comes to our schools and offers the flu vax for staff. It's very convenient, plus I can bug the staff with emails and lunch room flyers, so they don't "forget"

    That was rude and uncalled for.
    I am being serious.

    There is a group of people that simply do not believe in it unless their hands are visibly soiled. They cite many of the things anti-vaccine people cite, "doesn't work, is not necessary, is potentially harmful...."

    Both hand washing and vaccinations are forms of hygiene, they are both very firmly grounded in science and medicine as being beneficial. Why would someone question one foundation of science and medicine but not the others?

    I've already had mine! It's my medical assistant's favorite day of the year when she gets to jab me with a needle.

    Mine seemed to derive a little too much pleasure from giving me mine, too!

    I can't. Whenever I get the shot, I get the flu.
