Patient : I am a 28 year old very healthy female. I am very active and I have a very healthy lifestyle. I have not had so much as a cold for 3 years. My question is, do I actually need the flu shot? I have never had one before and never got sick. Six people in my province have died from H1N1 this year which has me concerned.
