How often do you get vaccinated?

I was wondering how often teachers on here get vaccinated. How do you go about it? Just show up at the pharmacy?

Vaccinated for what?

I do a lot of traveling and always make sure I'm up to date on tetanus, Hep A & B, typhoid, MMR, etc. I usually just ask while I'm at my annual physical/pap smear/breast exam. I'll ask if I need any updates, they look, and give them to me if I need something.

I mean to just protect yourself from the new strains of bugs that kids bring in. (new flu viruses, etc.)

I'm fully vaccinated.

I get a flu shot every year. I had all of my childhood vaccinations, and I have had boosters. I had a measles booster in college due to an outbreak. I've had tetanus shots more than once. We had an outbreak of whooping cough over the summer, so I was vaccinated in July. Had thd hepatitis vaccine. My doctor is a big supporter of vaccines.

I get my flu shot annually. In fact, I just got it last week during Thanksgiving Break.

I don't like vaccines. I've never had a flu shot. I think I had to get a shot when I traveled abroad 5 years ago...Maybe the MMR?

I get the tetanus shot every five years (recommended for my hobby).

Other than that I don't get much.

Never had the flu shot.

Our district tried to force employees to have some immunization (series of three...I forget), but I didn't.
