Likewise. Others have told me I am now eligible (old enough) but nobody contacted me, I don't remember ever having had flu in the past, but mainly I'm not a great fan of taking every going vaccination, pill, etc. I'll get vaccinations if I have to (e.g. rabies vaccination) but the more "optional ones" I'm less likely to go for.
Same will pills, get a headache and I don't reach for a box of pills but wait for it to go on it's own. When I have dental implants done (on my 3rd at the moment) they always do the "have you taken paracetamol and ibuprofen" before they start and I say "no, they don't help" and they appear with a box and insist.
