Am going to get flu shot soon. Trying to find open slot but so far nada..maybe too early. I always get it every year. Either cvs or costco. As for covid boosters, thats being held off for now, i had reaction day after getting one in july. Felt fluish for 40 hours followed by small rash.
Anyone else getting flu shot?

yes, I never get the flu shot but got it this year, we have just come out of winter, as the government made it free, and have had two Moderna boosters. Didn’t have any bad reaction. Had Covid in March, BA2 most likely and felt another Covid a few months ago, most likely BA5 but it didn’t develop into anything. Both times caught it off housemate. Housemate is in denial that we had Covid as the rapids were all negative, so technically we didn’t have it.

Flu shots normally cost 20 dollars, but luckily my insurance covers that cost.

$25 here, but if you are pensioner or on disability etc, it’s free.

@octo i was a sickly child. I had a cold or flu or whooping cough almost every month. I even had chicken pox at young age. I guess my immune system was pretty weak. Unlike now, im more resiliant

Back in the day i hated getting sick... but lol, i didnt mind missing out on school work Hyper by the time i was in my 30s and 40's i still got sick. I was working at some day treatment centers for mentally handicapped people for a number of years. And i got so used to being sick it didnt bother me at all.

Still havent scored a timeslot to get flu shot. Unless the supplies arent being produced in time? I mean i could wait till mid october. But when the weather turns cold, it will be a concern. Today its high 80's

I just had another cold like illness. Not Covid. But I guess with no masks on anyone, anywhere Every type of cold or virus is going around. The Covid wave is dropping off fast though. Australia was so cut off from the world with the border being closed from the start that we probably had less flu than other countries?
