Hell no. Read up on what is in those shots, and you'll make your decision.
I've never gotten one, and I do fine.

Well I mean, my parents are pressuring because of all the fear mongering on TV...
I just don't want to get sick.
Should I get the flu shot?

i have asthma and i still won't get that friggin shot! i'm 27 now. i've only got the shot like twice in my life...and that was when i was younger. i've always been opposed to the doctor, even as a child. and it was never a fear of them, per se. i've always felt that i can take care of a bug alone. if i can still drive myself to the doctor...i don't go. i like to let me body take care of things.
now...if you have AIDS or have crippling asthma...yeah...go get it. but...if you're a seemingly healthy person...don't. you have a greater risk of harming yourself with a shot than you do helping yourself.
