I wouldn't Dan, You know they're trying very hard to get rid of an over-stock from what I hear and it doesn't see to cover many of the flus, they are saying only 30% - Why risk it? I have been advised not to have it.
Of course, I am not a Dr - just my personal opinion.

I would probably pass on the vaccination. In Australia it is recommended for only a limited number of people:

www.immunise.health.gov.au/internet/immu...t/immunise-influenza
  • Over 65
  • Aboriginal
  • Pregnant
  • High risk patients like severe asthma, heart disease, lung disease, immunocompromised (HIV, transplant), and diabetics

Unless you're in one of these groups the arguments to have it are limited, and it typically makes you feel mildly unwell.
YMMV
