I hate this time of year, I always end up feeling sick and shitty for at least a week afterwards
same here, I rarely get sick, but the flu shot always ALWAYS kicks my ass
We got that liquid nasal shit. It's worse because it's a live virus rather than a dormant one. I blew that shit out. Fuck that.
this year was the first time in 4 years that I got a normal flu shot, the last 3 years have all been that nasal shit
that's fucking outstanding!
I skipped out on mine during the UTA
I try to avoid them just like the anthrax shots.
I was so close to getting the anthrax shot, I PCSed right before I was scheduled to get it
It's funny as hell to watch people get their first anthrax. At first they are all relieved that the needle is so small and they hardly feel a thing. All the time I'm thinking "wait for it... wait for it... wait for it!" and then they're all OMGWTFBBQ?!?!
It's got a real nice burn for about 5 minutes, starting about a minute after you get the shot. Funny as hell to watch first-timers get 'em.
I got mine 3 days ago and I feel fine.
I've been getting the anthrax shot since 1998 .... nothing DURRRRRRRRRRRR wrong with me yet...
I was on leave and missed my unit going over to get the nasal flu shit. They told me to go get it and I am avoiding it like the plague. I would rather chance getting sick than getting sick for sure, because I get sick after the shot regardless every year.
That shit sucks. I drilled with brigade last weekend, so I wasn't on their flu shot list. Lucky me.
I got the flu snort last week. I've been fucked in the sinuses ever since.
Flu nasal "mist"
I just got home from Drill. They were giving the mist/shot at our squadron. Medical came over to our building and setup shop in our Heritage room/lounge (Bar). I walk in around lunch time trying to catch the UCLA/USC game on the projector we have in there. Some female captain asked for my ID when I walked in. I was like, what for? "for the flu shot/mist" I told her I wasnt there for the flu mist, and she still insisted on seeing my ID card or telling her my SSN. I told her I had other stuff to do and just walked out.
I heard people are getting sick from the mist, so I'm not risking it. From what I heard, our unit was only doing the mist. I'll take a shot anytime, even anthrax, but getting the flu mist, and almost guaranteed to get sick, fuck that. Last year I got sick over 3 months.
Is there anyway to avoid having to get the flu shot? I got mine about 3 weeks ago, and I've been sick for some time now.
The fuck is with the military and flu shots? They don't want you sick yet this shit obviously does just that. What the hell is the point
yeah im feeling it right now and have been for 2 days ... i got it thursday
I haven't had a clear nostril since i got the stupid flu snort.
I even asked my doc if there was any option to not take the flu shot. His response, "Yeah its called mast."
What a dick.
I did the same thing. I was out the door no less than 15 seconds and I was blowning my nose.
Optional flu shot ftw
Fuck getting that shit
I was so happy this year for one reason or another i was always out of the company area whenever they were doing the nasal mist shit. After two weeks i hadnt heard anything about it and thought i was home free. Then last Friday I notice doc walking around with a huge ass clip board and a little helper carying boxes of that vile shit. Sucesfully avoided him all damn day till i happened to make a head call and the bastard ambushed me right outside the door. Where the hell did FMF Corpsmen learn how set up near flu related ambushes?
mist and antrax shots at the same time ftl
