We are physicaly fit & walk regularly, eat good foods, but certainly do not wish to succumb to an illness at this stage.

Last year (2018) in the U.S. alone 80,000 people died of the flu. I'm not sure what you think the downside of getting the shot is... but please consider what the downside of NOT getting the shot may be.

I would recommend having the shot every year. Getting the flu in your 90's could have severe complications and it would be much more difficult to recover from than for a younger person. I hope you decide to get your shot.

I’d advise having the flu shot. It could save you from illness, one that could get very complicated, and there are no real bad effects. Glad you’re both doing so well, here’s to continuing!

Continue with your annual flu shots! It can't hurt and it may well save your life, particularly the older you get.

The flu doesn't care how fit you are or the good foods you eat. Please get your shots.

I'm not clear why you would *not*want to have flu shots for each of you?? They are paid for by Medicare, and there is a special version for those over 65. In general, the older you are, the more likely you are to have more problems if you do get the flu. In addition, you may expose other senior citizens if you get the flue (as well as exposing other people in general), even if you are not very ill yourself. Hope this helps!
