At least that's what it seemed people surveyed outside CVS pharmacy were thinking in Swampscott Monday.
While others are scrambling to get a flu shot in a season where the flu is rampant some have yet to get one and aren't frantic to do so.
Bob Jean of Salem hasn't had a flu shot since 1946. It was just after World War II. He served in the US Navy from 1944-46 in the South Pacific aboard a cargo ship ferrying Marines and munitions.
Nearby in the CVS parking lot, waiting in a car for a friend, Swampscott resident Denis Dorgan said he has not got a flu shot this year.
The Swampscott High Class of 2011 grad has been working at a hospital and thought about getting one but hasn't.
But he might be getting one soon. And again there is a military connection. He has signed up for the US Army and soon will be shipping out to boot camp.
Elizabeth Brooking of Salem has yet to get a flu shot, either.
She has given it some thought, she said. And even researched it. But has yet to move on getting a shot.
Meanwhile, for those who want a shot from a local pharmacy, CVS pharmacists from Quincy to Salem and out to Newton said on Sunday that they were out of flu shots, said the Boston Business Journal.
