    She is picking up from the sales pitches and false winning letters.

    Did they get this experience from phony report cards?

    For the past three years, the flu vaccine has been <20% effective. Just keeping your hands washed and away from your face works better for most folks. I’ve only had one case of the flu since LASIK surgery five years ago (had to learn not to rub my eyes). If you’re in a “risky” group, get vaccinated. But, if not, consider additional hygiene.

    Having had influenza once in my 20s, nearly did me in, I get my flu shot annually. What most people call flu is a couple of days discomfort, they have no idea how devestating real flu is.

    I actually used to get hospital grade ER worthy flu just after Christmas. Happened for about 5 years. Stopped just BEFORE the vaccine became popular. I think it’s because I moved back to the germs I grew up with, or something. Anyway, I’m with stairsteppublishing – the little achy things I get now are NO PROBLEM in comparison. (AND I’ve got 2 young, touch EVERYTHING, kids). Actually, the only thing I’ve gotten close to it is food poisoning.

    If a little stick in my arm decreases my chance of days of misery (and it’s usually much higher than 20%) then I’m on board. Besides, it’s a tradition. Having had a career in the military, I’ve had a flu shot every year for over 30 years now.

    How about getting the shot AND trying to be extra careful with hygiene?

    Having a flu shot makes the flu less powerful, even if it was the wrong strain. in addition, it helps protect infants and others who can’t get the shot.

    We need 90% immunity, and the anti-vaxers already account for a large percentage of this.

    One of my friends described the difference between the flu and a cold this way: “if you have a bad cold, and someone puts a $100 bill at the door of your room you’ll pick up your misery, get up, pick it up and collapse again. If you have influenza you’ll ignore the cash and wallow in your misery”

    I started getting my flu shot when my fathers halite started failing him.

    Pop was allergic to egg serum, horse serum, penicillin, streptomycin and sulfa drugs. The best way for him not to get the flu was i i didn’t bring it into his home.

    I am now a professional care giver. I take the shots so i don’t bring the flu into a clients home.

    And, oh, buy the way, flu vaccine is 100% effective for the flue virus that they target.

    Telling yourself different just puts you into the category of Science Deniers.

    One year I got coverage to two out of three strains and did get mildly ill because I did get partial immunity for the third strain. Those who don’t want vaccines want to die, but must they condemn their children to the same outcome?

    Got my shot already. But,as I understand it, the flavor of flu that a shot protects against is determined basically by lottery. If the wrong kind of flu comes by, you’re out of luck—no protection. I certainly believe in science. But I also believe in its limitations.

    Actually, the odds of them matching the virus in any given year is far far better than your odds in the lottery. Hopefully as computer modeling on virus propagation becomes more advanced it will get better.

    I started to get the shot perhaps about 15 years ago when my elderly Mom lived with us. As a professor, I would get exposed to hundreds of student’s various germs and wanted to try to decrease my chances of bringing a flu pathogen home with me because my Mom was so frail. Now, even though she sadly passed away several years ago, I still get the shot because I think it is helpful for me and my family and for the other folks I interact with to have at least tried to diminish my risk and decrease my ability to transfer such risks.


    A shot in the arm to ward off against the flu… followed by a nice shot of a pleasant elixir when I get home to ward off the “pain” of the injection in my arm. :) That is my routine.

    I thought I was going to die the last time I got the ‘flu. Admittedly, they don’t always predict correctly on the strain in the vaccines, but it’s accurate enough times to make a difference.
