The CDC is warning this year's flu season promises to be a particularly bad one. Already five states, including Alabama, have seen a high rate of flu cases. Officials also suggest getting vaccinated to prevent the spread.

While many medical professionals have assured me the flu shot will not make you sick, the sickest I've ever been was after receiving the flu shot so I stopped getting them. Haven't had the flu since.

The argument over the effectiveness of flu shots isn't just limited to doctors and patients. I've seen several debates taking place on various message boards and the points made for and against made me curious about the mindset of our own community.
