No as it has been proven that they are not effective.

•It does’t work: The Cochrane Database – an objective, gold-standard assessment of available evidence has plainly stated, in TWO STUDIES, that there is no data to support efficacy in children under two, and in adults. Even the former Chief Vaccine Officer at the FDA states: “there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.” Liking the idea of being protected from the flu does not equate to being protected from the flu. That’s essentially what your vaccine-promoting doctor (or pharmacist) is engaging in – promoting an idea.

No, the shots are just a guess as to which flu strain may be around for the season.  I don't like the odds of the government guessing correctly...

Never have and never will, every year I see my facebook blow up with people that got the shot and either got sick or had some crazy side effects. They also still tend to get sick throughout winter. 

I'll just deal with one cold and let my body handle it.
