Re: tell me your pro's and cons!

The flu shot is totally voluntary (at least here it is... I don't THINK any states mandate it?). Our super-vax pedi pushes it but I just smile and say "I need to discuss with DH" and then we never make an appt for it."
DH and I have never had flu shots, even while pg. DD has not had flu shots (could have gotten last winter, and this year). While I have no issue with the regular regime of vaxing, this one just gets me. It seems pointless, the side effects are so common and I'm too lazy to deal with them lol, and we are all in very good health.
Now, if someone in my house had a compromised immune system, or other extenuating circumstance, that would be a different story.
