    Pretty neat idea, sad that it takes bribery to get people to get their flu shots.

    If you seriously believe that - you're naive...

    They'd had our DNA cataloged since birth!

    Haven't had a flu shot in over 30 years and may have never had one, also haven't had the flu either.

    Really? They can bribe all they want, I'll never get another one. Spent 2 days in bed the last time. Ruined a weekend.

    Ruined a weekend, sure that's too bad, what if you give the flu to someone who is immunocomprimised and they die?

    Yeah really. I have two family members who have compromised immune systems, they rely on otherwise healthy people to get vaccinated to protect them. It's called heard immunity.

    You don't get sick from the flu. Allergies or immune responses aren't the same as getting the flu.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...e-flu/1833793/

    The main reason people get the flu after getting a flu vaccine is because there are different strains of the flu. They try to plan out which strains will be prevalent each year, but it's hard to predict 100%. I've gotten the flu after getting a flu vaccine, but it was on a cruise (lots of people in close quarters going to forigen countries) and it only lasted a couple days, not a week like it would otherwise, because the vaccine still limits the severity of other strains that it wasn't designed for.

    Similar to me. Never had the flu except the one year I decided to get one.

    So, you do understand that it was total chance that you got a different strain of the flu and not the vaccine right?
