I'm phoning for my flu shot appointment on Monday. I have never had one before, but I really don't want to get the flu again.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

I swear on my flu shot. I've never had the flu when I get the shot early. This year, however, I was delayed until Christmas, and I came down with the flu less than a week after getting it. I'm still struggling to get over it and am now on antibiotics as the flu turned into a respiratory infection. I usually get my shot in October...which is a bit early. But if it allows me to avoid flu, the shot is a deal.

Sorry you're family is ill. We drink a Silver Mineral Supplement so we hardly ever get colds and if we do it lasts a day or 2 at most.

If you can't get that you can try Immuniforce or Echinacea drops. They all work well.
