      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?

      I get a flu shot every September, with no side effects or colds.  I’ve noticed no changes to my Parkinson’s symptoms after getting the shot.

        I get the flu shot every year.

      I get a flu shot every year and have had no side effects at all, despite having Parkinson’s.

      I get a flu shot annually. I’m now get the stronger one for people over 65.  Even with that one, I’ve never had a problem or reaction of any kind.

      I have gotten flu shots since the beginning of flu shots.  I have never been sick from getting a flu shot, and I don’t believe they make you sick, unless you are already sick, or at the beginning of getting sick.  I have Parkinson’s, and I got my shot about three weeks ago.  I did not even have a sore arm, but it was red where the shot was given.
