I got the monster/extra strength flu shot and the lady giving it to me told me it might "knock me down" for a couple days as the immune system was activated. No shit - 36 hours later I briefly ran a temp. of 101 and hurt all over. Had to take a day of work *but* this last 2 weeks some of my coworkers came down with the real flu. We do a lot of work at hospitals and clinics. Get the damn shot. It's worth it sore arm and 48 hour immune response. Way better than the real thing.

I can imagine. My shoulder was hurting for days just from the regular shot.

Yeah, the flu's no joke. It's put me in the hospital twice. Get the shot.

Yeah, we're a bunch of A.K.s! I include myself of course!
