I have never gotten a flu shot in the past and I am even more hesitant now that I have PD. It seems the slightest thing will exacerbate my symptoms and I worry about the impact of a flu shot on my PD. I have heard it can give you a slight cold, however, when I had a cold last winter, I felt horrible. Have you gotten a flu shot? If so, how did it impact you? If not, why did you not get a flu shot?
