Anyone here get a flu shot this year? I got one for the first time ever. I'm concerned about the possible Avian Flu Pandemic. Many articles by MD's indicate that many people can deal with the regular or Avian Flu and get over it but to get both in the same season (having the regular flu does not make you immune to the Avian Flu) or at the same time would be very bad for you. At least if you've had the regular flu shot, there's a very good chance that if you get flu symptoms later on, you can make the determination that its Avian Flu and take the appropriate actions quickly - like going to the doctor immediately.
