Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Got my flu shot last month. They seem to be my "good luck charm" at keeping colds & sinus infections at bay.
I only get 1 or 2 during the winter when I get a flu shot. If I skip a year I seem to have one that endures the entire season.

I just got over a respiratory bug. Started two weeks ago and finally it was gone. Started with a terrible sore throat, then went into coughing, sleeping more than a couple hours without a coughing fit was rough. Then had a stomach flu (as did about a quarter of my office, all the same day).

Finally the coughing is gone. I went to urgent care after a week of coughing, received a short course (Z-Pack?) antibiotic that I didn't start as I was feeling better aside from coughing, finally took it after the stomach flu. So far, no one I know has had the same illness, with the severe cough. No fever, not sure what it was.
