I don't know Monica. I talked to the nurse Mon. about getting one and she recommended that DH and I both get one, I've never had one before. She said it is a dead, whatever it is, and you can't get the flu from the shot. The worse that can happen is your arm might get a little sore, with all the knots in my upper arms, I think it might be more painful for some of us than others. This is standard respiratory flu, not stomach flu.
We have had many rainy dreary days lately and that has me in a flare along with the changing temps. So depending on where you live it might be the weather.
luv and hugs
