No way will I ever get any flu vaccine. I'm allergic to half the stuff they put in those vaccines anyway (eggs, preservatives, etc.). I use homeopathic Oscillococcinum taken once a week throughout flu season as prevention. I also find taking homeopathic Acute ViroReliever helpful for boosting my immune system - my Naturopath gave this to me and tests before starting treatment vs. after being on it for several months showed big improvements in my usually abysmally low Lymphocyte counts. I also agree Vitamin D3 is important, as is Vit. C. My Mom is a firm believer in garlic as a good preventative also.
