  • I would get it if it was more readily available – not just immunocompromised, elderly or children


  • I always get the shot as I work in medical assistive roles but have never had a bad reaction and after seeing this years flu I’ll make sure I keep getting them.


  • I ca’t have it for medical reasons but I’d be in two minds whether to if I could …. I hear so many people complain of side effects and still get sick even once they’ve had it! However, it is scary and alarming how many people have died from the flu over the last year or two, that it makes you wonder that the initial reaction may not be so bad …..


  • I had this years one and i had a really bad reaction to it. Felt horrible and had a rash over my body


  • Yes, we all do, children included. Better to be safe than sorry in my opinion.


  • I’m sceptical of the flu shot. It really hasn’t proven that it works. How can every year the flu gets worse and yet more and more people are getting the flu shot. Is the flu shot the actual problem and people aren’t getting immune to the flu anymore? Is there some biggest conspiracy going on? I think these are the questions we need to ask ourselves. Don’t get me wrong I vaccinate my children with all the other childhood vaccinations as they have proven to make sure my children don’t get sick from illnesses.


  • YES!!! This year the flu is very virulent so it is a must!!! EVERYBODY including little ones.


  • I’ve always worked in the medical field so it was a requirement of my work. Now that I’m out, I’m not bothering this year. It really is personal preference.


  • i always get it now. And so do my kids. They are 2 and 3 now, but 2 years ago they both got influenza A and it was horrible. My then 23 month old basically didn’t eat for a week and lost a kg in weight. He was also skinny and this didn’t help, so he dropped a couple of rungs on the weight scale. And it was so sad to see my 8 moth old just lying on the bouncer all day and barely moving. It scared me so much that i won’t go without it now for everyone.


  • Weighing up getting it this year?


  • I have been a bit weary as my mum got sick from it once. But I am really considering it this year especially since our little one is going to daycare. I think we will do it for all of us.
