Should I get the flu shot?
I'm debating if I should get the flu shot this year. I'm 13 and a girl if that's relevant. I don't really like needles and I'm a big baby and start crying when I have to get one. Still, I would knowingly torture myself to get a needed shot. I've gotten sick this year a few times and I get sick all the time so I think it might be good for me but I'm open to opinions if I should or should not get the flu shot. My mother says I don't really need one but if I want one she'll take me to get it. (I have all my needed and recommended shots except Gardisil.(My doctor, my mom, and I think it's a bad idea and not needed.) ) Right now I'm probably not going to get the shot until I hear more good outweighing the bad about getting the flu shot. Thanks!

P.S. I hate getting sick and I'd rather be in accidental pain than be in accidental sickness.

Captainsoy .
dont need it many get sick from the shot itself.

NO, all vaccines are dangerous and needless. You are better off getting sick naturally and fighting it with your immune system. If you don't like being in accidental sickness then definitely don't get it, because it can actually give you the flu.

you dont need the shot, why get any unneeded medicines in your body that you dont need...

Well, if your afraid of needles then don't get a flu shot. I never got a flue shot and I turned out fine!

No, my mother is a chiropractor and I have never gotten a shot in my life and I am almost never sick. Google chiropractors against vaccinations.

the flu shot is the actual virus so that your immunes build up a defense for it...but it only protects you from those specific flus so its up to you.....i have never gotten one but then again i rarely get sick..its up tp you..

Yes, of course you should get a flu shot. Everyone should get a flu shot unless they are allergic to something in the shot, or their doctor advises them to not get the shot due to an unusual medical condition. BTW, you can not get the flu from the flu shot.

Just my opinion but no.

First I am just dubious about the efficacy of projecting which flu strains are going to be going around this winter.

Mainly though it is indicated if you are in a vulnerable group like the elderly or sick or if you work with them (eg healthcare).

Healthy Teenaged girls are not the target demographic

dont get it it gives u the virus and it might get worse depeding on your imune system.

I don't think it's really necessary. Flu shots are more for people who are directly exposed to the flu, or people who could be put into a serious health crisis if they get the flu (like young children and the elderly). Besides, it seems like they're only right in predicting the flu strain about half the time...so you could end up getting the shot,. and getting a different strain of the flu.

I wouldn't get the shot....but it's up to you. :)


dont get it.

you'll go to purgatory faster.

yes and no you dont need it But i would...

unless your an infant or elderlery (or if you have a auto immune disorder) you don't need one

i hate needles too and i havent had one in years and personally im fine

Craig H
Sure if you don't wanna get sick but at your age you would bounce back faster them most people with the flu if you didnt get it but I would get it to help stop you from getting sick

P.S you dont get th flu from the shot only if you have the beginning or was around some one or some thing to get the flu before you get the shot the shot is actually the dead virus from what I hear


Its your decision, however, the flu shot can help prevent the flu. Don't get the shot when you are sick because the shot could make you more sick.

Usually, if you get the flu shot, even if you end up getting the flu, it won't be as severe or bad as it would be had you not gotten the shot.

Good luck!


It's up to you, but every year i SKIP the flu shot, and every year I don't get the flu. I have known many people who get the shot and then become sick, and many who do not.

It's a chance you have to take I guess, and there is not any evidence that if you get a flu shot that you are guaranteed to NOT get the flu, since there are so many types of viruses floating around.

It's up to you, I don't bother with it.

yes get a flu shot wait doees ur parents know though? just kidding yes it will be better than not sick

Sure. Your parents and doctor should decide for it.

I get this sick feeling and dizziness when I get shots. I felt my whole body sweat and had a feeling of vomiting.

flu shots are good for you and are good to get. with that said, i never get one because i just don't get around to it. i don't get sick much, but everything i've read says they are good to get.


Ask your family doctor.

They have a nasal spray they use for pediatric. You may want to check to see if you are a candidate.

flu is not really that bad unless you have things like copd and asthma. Still a good idea to get it cause it gives your immune system a boost.

The benefits outweigh the detriments.
