OK
Got my shot but didn't get it until December. I had gotten bronchitis and sinusitus before Thanksgiving which kept me down for 4 days - missed Thanksgiving Dinner even! Still battling getting it all cleared out. Flu is bad here too. My daughter had 6 kids out of her classroom last week. Had a few more that shouldn't have been there, but unless their fever is up to a certain degree and they are throwing up they can't call the parents. Since you don't throw up with this strain of flu the kids are there! Parents need to keep their kids home when they are sick. I know a lot of it is employers won't let the parents off so they have no one to watch them. That is sad.

No, but I wish the people who did would stay the heck at home.

I don't wanna use my sick days because you refuse to use yours. smirk

I assume you got a flu shot, infants are at a higher risk of getting it

Perhaps any "crud" is related to the dog treat recall thread. Just a theory though.

I don't do flu shots. The flu shot doesn't cover every type of flu going around and just puts a mild strain in your system as is. The irony is 1/2 the people who have had a flu shot have gotten the flu around here.

I got my flu shot & so did the baby, but he was due for a booster flu shot and was unprotected until he got the booster. He was due for the booster the week he got sick. mad

Have another friend with a baby, and her little one got a 1 dose flu shot, no booster. Don't know why they were different. Our babies are the same age.

The one year I didn't get the flu shot I got the "real" flu, not just the cruddy flu-like stuff. Went home with Tamiflu and was quarantined by the doctor for several days. Don't want to feel like that again.

I don't do flu shots either. So far, the Emergen-C and the coconut oil capsules have managed to squash what started out as the flu. I kind of felt achy for a day and had a scratchy voice for a couple more.

Also saw on the news that the flu epidemic has been exacerbated by the fact that millions of workers do not have paid sick days and feel they might lose their job if they dared to call in sick. My husband's boss game him a hard time when he was feeling ill so he went in to work and then his boss and a few co-workers wound up getting sick a few days later.

Never had a flu shot, although I recently accepted a pneumonia vaccine shot so I don't end up like President Bush with a hospital stay of 2 months to fight bronchitis.

We had one employee out the beginning of the week with the flu, and today two more are out. There is a cloud of lysol in the lobby right now smile and everyone is wiping down their areas.

I never used to get flu shots until I had my first child. I get it every year now, for what it's worth, and make sure my kids get them also.

Most of the folks here that got sick either quarantined themselves in their office, or worked from home. I am healthy and grateful for that. smile

We've got 4-5 people out, some flu some other junk. One near me is out with some unnamed contagious virus and banned from work until next week. The Mrs. is coming down with something, so that's awesome.

I had my shot, and I pop Vit C pills on occasion, that's about it. I took some yesterday, will probably take more today!

I did. Flu (type A I think) compounded with bronchitis. Took 3 weeks to get back to "normal." Emergen-C + running in this weather helped.

I'm halfway into my second week. Stayed home all of last week and I just had someone tell me that they thought I should take a couple more days to recover. LOL...I look that bad?

One thing I really dislike is when people come to work and they are sick.

Just because you don't want to "waste" a sick day (uh, what do you think they're for?!), doesn't mean I want to get sick.

I worked with someone who used those for added vacation days.
