That is why everyone, regardless of age gets the flu right? Because we all have "poor ass immune systems"?

Flu shots are worthless. There are multiple strands of the Flu virus every year. The shot only protects against one strand, not all of them like people seem to think.
Actually, they protect against the three most common strains from the previous year. I guarantee you that if you contracted H1N1, you would be wishing you had just gotten the shot.

If you want good information about the flu shot, here is a great site. CDC - Seasonal Influenza (Flu) - Q & A: Seasonal Flu Shot
