I think (and I'm not saying you did this, RealityChuck, just using your post as a jumping-off point) that part of the antipathy (or at least apathy) towards flu shots stems from people not really understanding what THE FLU is. So many people in my experience seem to think of it as a bad cold. It isn't. The level of unwellness I felt when I had the flu, the true and proper flu, was like nothing else I had ever had before. Not an experience I care to repeat.

I'm a bit surprised, too. They used to offer them when I was there, though that's several years back now.
