Yes for both of us except the seasonal flu shots which I don't feel comfortable getting

We had the necessary boosters when DS was first vaccinated. We are not vaccinated for flu though.
I previously thought I was unable to have most vaccines as I'm allergic to eggs, and some vaccines are derived from eggs. After further investigation I found out there are only about 3 vaccines I cannot have.
I was relieved to find out I had immunity to rubella prior to falling pregnant.
I know for a fact that I had very few vaccines as a child. My mother was scared of the potential side effects due to a few 'stories' she heard. My dad has an intellectually disabled uncle and back then (early 80's) she was told by a doctor not to vaxx due to this element of our family history! My brother IS mildly intellectually disabled anyway, but I guess she didn't want him to get any worse.

I have no idea! I had the WC booster 2.5 years ago when DS was born. I caught chicken pox and mumps a a child and I think I had a rubella vax as a teenager! I think I'm too old for the cervical cancer vax? What vaccines are available for adults other than WC and flu?

Yep. DH is a nurse and we've travelled, so had needles for that as well. We also get the flu needles each year, and I've had gardisil.
I didn't get the chickenpox needle as I was told that I already had immunity to it - less than 12 months later I was back at the GP with a nasty case of chickenpox and he looked over my bloods again. Turns out he didn't read the results properly. I was pretty annoyed.

No, I'm probably due for boosters & only had 2/3 doses of Gardasil. My partner is the same, he has a phobia of needles. Both of us were immunised as children though. We don't get flu shots and were told when my son was born last year that we'd already be covered for WC from our high school shots.
