    I was told by my doctor that because I have CFS, I should be getting the flu shot every year. I have been doing so now for about 10 years, and I've noticed the last couple of years that I don't get sick as often, and my colds are usually much shorter in duration.

    I no longer get the flu shot. Havent for 2 yrs and have been fine.

    The reason was the mercury levels from them. Too many additives in them for no reason.

    lots of people with CFS find that getting the flu shot and other vaccinations triggers a flare and often causes flu like symptoms....some people even got CFS after a vaccination
