Yes! I was diagnosed with diabetes over 25 years ago, so I try to protect myself. Also the pneumonia vaccine. About 7 years ago I got the shingles vaccine and about 3 years after that I got the shingles—but not as bad! Last year I got the shingrix shingles vaccine.

My wife and I got ours last week at a pharmacy.

 

I've gotten one each year for years based on my doctors advising it (hey, I'm easy). My wife resisted for years until she realized that she was getting a bad flu every year whilst I went scot-free.

Let me edit this to add that I have horrible sinuses, lots of polyps (I attribute these to growing up in a smoking household) and allergies. So I really try to steer clear of colds and flu. I regularly use a neti pot with solution to clean out my sinuses in the winter and during allergy seasons. Try it!

Do you get a flu shot every year? Why or why not?
