    And this reminder is particularly relevant to the snowflakes since we're known to have delicate constitutions and therefore more susceptible to the flu virus.   icon_lol.gif

    bon_pan saidHave never gotten a flu vaccine. Last time I had the flu was 28 years ago.

    Same here. Then in my mid or early 50s I got it and it was a near death experience. I realized that I was getting old enough that it had become risky getting it so I started getting the shot every year. I rode public transit to work and would come down with a cold every winter, sometimes twice a winter.

    A lot of people don't understand the difference between the flu and a cold since the symptoms are almost the same now. Back when I was a kid the flu involved lots of nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting, along with a monumental fever. That doesn't happen now and the symptoms are just like a cold, except for the monumental fever. So people who think that colds and the flu are synonymous and have gotten a flu vaccine and then came down with a cold think that the flu shot is a waste, or even worse, that the flu shot made them sick.
