    I need to get mine and wondering if it has side effects. I heard one person tell me that it can make you feel fluish? Just curious if anyone here has gotten the vaccine.

    I had that vaccine and had no side effects.

    I had pneumoni two yrs ago, and never wanted to go thru that again . . . then shortly after that I had a lung infection.

    I felt it was really worth a shot (pun intended). So far, so good.

    I was very surprised that I would get pneumonia or a lung infection since I hardly ever get colds. I believe my immune systom works overtime.

    Hope what ever you decide to do works well.

    Hi I had one several years ago because I was a previous smoker back in 1984 I quit but always seem to have bronchitis or pneumonia every year and taking anitbiotics all the time,even years after quitting the smoking. I didnt have any side effects that im aware of and havent had bronchitis or pneumonia for me it was a great thing. Good luck with whatever you decide.
