All our kids + myself and wife get the flu shot. I don't want to deal 
with a diabetic child that is dehydrated and has a raging viral 
infection. Control is difficult enough without dealing with the flu. As 
for the other kids, one has a mildly comprised respirator system and the 
others I don't wish to take care of with the flu. Same for my wife and 
myself. If we are very ill, who takes care of the rest of the family. If 
none get the shot and one gets sick, probably all will get sick and that 
would be a hugh hassle.
