I absolutely will be getting a flu shot.
I'm back in grad school, and my fieldwork is at an elementary school. I absolutely cannot miss a week of classes/field for the flu.
I always get the flu, which isn't that bad, except that I end up, without fail, with COMPLICATIONS from the flu, such as bronchitis or pneumonia. I also get asthmatic when I get respiratory infections. I don't see any reason not to get it.
