The vaccine is safe. My doctor offered it to me in early November. I haven't been sick a day, not from the vaccine nor from any flu. Not even a cold. But I know people who did get sick with that flu. One was in the hospital for 10 days and she's still not over it. It's foolish not to get protection from the vaccine.
