Flu shot or not?

Hi All--

I'm 5 and 1/2 years post kidney TX and doing great (despite the pandemic). I've never had a flu shot in my life and wondering if most of you take one. I've also only had the flu once about 25 years ago. I'm nervous about getting one this year (even though it is being recommended) since friends who have gotten the shot end up with a cold (some of them get bad colds). I don't want to do something that will make me ill (even a little). What are you all doing? Do you get the flu shot and do you get a little cold after? Are we more likely to get a little sick because of our immune suppression?

Thanks, everyone! 

Carla
