Colds/bronchitis, usually once a year...stomach stuff when it's going around, wife brings it home from the school she works at...but that stuff isn't the flu. Anti vaccine people, especially the stuff for kids (whooping cough) drive me nuts. Daughter in law is a pediatrician...she lost young patients to that during her residency. Practice she works for now won't accept patients who haven't been vaccinated...won't risk the exposure to others. Don't blame her at all.
