I am considering getting a second flu shot because I think it will lose it's strength after 6 months. Please give me your opinion. Six months will be February for me.

I can't see it doing you any harm.

The flu season will be ending by then, so you could probably save the cash - unless there is a local spike in cases around then or you have to do lots of meet-and-greet.

The vaccine's effects do tail off, but you will still have some protection left. I think you are sufficiently well informed to make the best choice. I am unlikely to have as much local info to mix with the medicine.

My answer to the poll is: "Sometines - in bad flu years."
