Flu Shots
« on: October 21, 2012, 08:14:34 pm »
Who has gotten their flu shots this year or plan to get a flu shot soon - I am going to get one - they will be giving the shots close to where I live in early November so think I will go there.  :angel12:

Inspite of getting the flu shot people still get the flu. I dont understand why people still have faith in  these flu shots. :dontknow:

I have never had a flu shot and am not planning to get one either. I wonder if the flu virus in the US is the same as the one in South Africa - if so, then I will be safe (she says, crossing her fingers)!

Only once in my life have I ever had one.  Work sort of gave us no choice.  I will never get another.

There is a new flu shot this year that has short needles to give the shot - guessing it will hurt less.  :female:

I don't plan to get a flu shot this year and I most likely won't have the extra money for it anyways. So, I'm not gonna worry about it.

We have never received any, nor will we ever.  I don't believe in vaccines of any kind.  Because the immune system can be strengthened naturally with nutrition, plenty of clean water, the Essential 90 nutrients (look up Dr Joel Wallach of Dead Doctors Don't Lie fame).   I take 5,000 IU Vitamin D3 daily to help prevent the flu too.

Considering all the bad ingredients in the flu vaccines (and other vaccines), the KNOWN and REPORTED Adverse Reactions, I'd rather take a chance and get the flu naturally and then become immune to that strain the way nature intended to give us permanent immunity.

I would like a free Flu shot, because I do not have health insurance.   I think the Flu shots should be free to all.  Last year one hospital had a health fair and gave out free Flu shots, but they are not having a health fair this year.

I've never gotten a flu shot and i've never gotten the flu. Some people say that by getting the flu shot, they caught the flu. I've heard some say that when they got teh flu shot they got sick from it. Not the flu but nausea and headaches. I've always been skeptical about it so i just don't get it.

I never take the Flu Shot.  They always ask me at the doctor's office, but I won't take it.

I got one for the first time i'm pregnant and it was recommended by my doctor so I said why not. I really don't want the flu.
