Quoted from jgentry:

while I'm healthy now and it likely wouldn't kill me,

I thought *exactly* the same about a month ago, until I got the flu. It was really, really bad.
Vaccination for me next year, no doubt!

Quoted from o-din:

Instead of telling people what to do and calling them names or trying to lay some guilt trip on them, have you ever considered asking nicely? Might at least sway some to your way of thinking.

I'll ask you nicely then

I am 52 and you are probably not younger than me.
I am reasonably healthy, and yet I almost died from the flu last January (actually from some complications).

I did not get a shot last winter but believe me, even if this shot gives me only 36% of escaping it this winter, I'll take it!
As long as it's not a mandatory shot, feel free to disregard my advice and I won't complain. Just explaining how bad it was.

Well, this entire thread has ran its course frankly... it's now running in circles and no one is going to convince anyone!
