Has Anyone Gotten Flu Shots This Season Either For Themselves Or Their Children?
Thanks everyone for your input.
I haven't had the flu shot because every time I got one I am sick so I am not not going to have it this year
No, I dont get the flu shot. I use a homeopathic nosode.
Study: 97 percent of children affected by 2009 mumps outbreak were vaccinated for condition

Thanks for the info C.S.
I wouldn't get a flu shot for several reasons number 1 is that it can cause Guillain Barre Syndrome a horrible crippling illness. I know of two cases personally. Number 2 is the drug companies make an educated Guess at what strain of flu will be common for the season (shot can cover as many as three strains) but often miss it completely so the shot does no good at all. Like in the case of H1N1 there was panic over nothing it just didn't spread
By the way I used to be a senior executive in the Pharmaceutical industry and wouldn't take or have anyone in my family take a Flu shot
I do believe in vaccines especially for meningitis But not for flu vaccine
because of "Squallene"....
I've received some sort of flu shot for many years.... Don't even get me started on the shots you get before you go to war in the middleeast.
Zero ill effects, and Zero colds and flus....
Gym fitness nuts (guilty) swear by them to keep them in the gym instead of on the sidelines sick.
Last flu shot I got made me sicker than he double hockey sticks, just come at me with a hypo needle ..good luck if u survive...I work outside, no germies for me!!!
My kids had them this year--I did not-nor my husband--we both got a raging case of the flu we thought was going to kill us---our kids did not even get sick---every other member of our family who did not get one got sick as a dog. I am wary of vaccinations--especially since they have diagnosed my son with Aspberger syndrome and we are not sure of the origin--but this year I was wishing I had had a flu shot.
Yep, I try to get one every year. This year I made a point of getting mine in October & am glad I did. No side effects, issues or problems. And no flu, cold or virus so far this season. Hey Lisa, glad you (& your hubby) recovered!!
never had the shot, had a family in my area who had a child die from complications of it. it seems it is always rushed into production, never tested to it's fullest extent. i just don't trust it.
Anyone with COPD, emphysema & the like NEEDS to get an annual flu vaccine & should also get the pneumonia vaccine (check with their doctor for recommended age, usually 65 & up but could be earlier for folks with lung issues). Good hygiene practices including washing your hands etc ... ARE important too, esp. for 'at risk' individuals, but do not preclude getting vaccinated.

And individuals who may be healthy enough to withstand a bad bout with flu themselves are still increasing the exposure risk for other immune compromised people. So if you have a baby or elderly senior at home, you would get vaccinated to help protect them.
Doug, that is very sad. Certain people cannot/ should not receive a flu vaccine. & rarely a person will have a severe reaction, same as with say anesthesia. For most people, the risks are nominal, esp. compared to the benefits.
My aunt lived to be 94 and had a flu shot every single year....she had lung issues for 30 years before she died. Seems as if the flu shot is so dangerous, she certainly would have died sooner. Just saying.....
Shattering the myth about Squalene...most interesting article.
I don't normally take flu shots but I did this year because I have a family friend who is 87 yrs old and very ill. Since I help take care of him alot I decided it would be better to risk me than to risk giving him the flu which would probably kill him. I didn't have any ill effects but no less than 2 days after I took it I heard a news story say that the vaccine this year is not effective against this years flu strain. Imagine that.
Sorry...... I DON'T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT OR ANY PART, Including the CDC..., ANYMORE...... DON'T BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY....NOR NOTHING THEY DO.
