I’ve never had the flu but a few years back I started getting the shot every year. I also got the pneumovax shot which is good for at least 5 years I believe. Because there are numerous strains of flu circulating and the fact that they can mutate rapidly, getting the shot is no guarantee you won’t get the flu, but it certainly reduces the risk.
