@rosemarya I had mine in mid-September, I wanted it in advance of my long flights. My husband refuses to get lone, he thinks that when he does he always comes down with the flu! As I say to him, whatever! It’s hard to dispute his philosophy, he’s 82, is on no meds and rarely even takes an ibuprofen.

It must be hard to argue with his success 🙂

My mom is 91 and never has a flu shot or pneumonia shot and only occasionally gets an upper respiratory infection or a cold and manages to take care of it with OTC products and I faithfully get every vaccination possible and still get some form of the flu towards Feb. or March of each year.

Go figure!

@hopeful33250 Teresa, it is very hard! He switched oncologists from one in Boston to one up here who I go to for hematology. I accompanied him to his appointment and as the doctor went over his medical history he almost fell off his stool. Then he went on about how young my husband looks for being 82! He really does look a lot younger than that. I tell him it’s his Italian heritage that keeps him young, and I do think that helps!

Yes, Italian blood must be the key 🙂
