yep you can get the flu shot.
i've gotten it in the past, but opted not to this year. mostly i would get one when i worked with kids.
i've had the flu before, and luckily it didn't effect my asthma. mine is so much better now than it used to be.
i'm not sure the parents of kid's who have died or had other problems after getting vaccinations would think it's best to have most. i'm not saying we won't ever get vaccinations, but we will wait a few years, so that their bodies can handle it better. of course we're not planning on daycare, so we have a while.
