My INR clinic said it is amust for all patients... I am young and don't want a flu shot... any suggestions? What has everyone else done?
Sounds like your clinic is looking to make money. Are you in a high risk job, like working at a hospital? If not, there is nothing mandatory about taking the shot. The flu shot mix is their best guess at what is coming this winter. If they are correct it will stop you from getting the flu. If you get the flu and it is the same type as was in the shot, you should recover more quickly and the effects should be less. If they are wrong, then you will get no real benefit at all. You will need to make the decision for yourself. For myself, I will not get the flu shot.
