They said the shot only had about a 10% effective rate. I didn't get it, and never do, and I caught this flu bug. I just dealt with it, it's clearing up after 5 days.

Besides, you're giving your body a chance to build up its immunity to influenza again, especially since this particular strain has mutated.


The choice is yours, either believe the conspiracies behind it, or don't.

No flu shots here.
No pnuemonia shots.
Same with shingles.

I am a wee bit allergic to shots....and doctors LOL

I only had 1 flu shot about 12 years ago - before I knew better. Most have mercury in them and there is a much higher chance of getting alzheimer's if you take it regularly.
I am on the at risk list as I have asthma but will never get another shot of the vaccination.


Thimerosal in Flu Vaccine- CDC

Past exposure to vaccines and subsequent risk of Alzheimer's disease - NCBI

So, nope.


If he had a past reaction to the flu shot, he should not take the shot. Aluminum adjuvants in vaccines used to stimulate a reaction can up the risk of asthma also. You would get more aluminum from baking powder and especially pickles though. Some soft cheese slices also contain aluminum. But since we cannot isolate ourselves from aluminum in the diet sometimes, the flu vaccine can be the tip of the iceberg, so some people think it alone is causing their health issues in Asthma. Eliminating aluminum sources can lessen asthma risk, including the flu shot which uses aluminum based adjuvants. I did not check if other types of vaccines do contain aluminum. Mercury and aluminum and also titanium have similar adjuvant responses..

I suppose that I am the milkmaid. Medical practice is exactly what it says..."practice". I don't think that vaccines have some hidden agenda, although they can carry side effects or be altogether ineffective. I see it as biological programming and I'm in.

Vaccines are made to trigger immune response (hopefully, not to excess) and statistically, very few have negative reactions.

If you know you do react badly, definitely avoid!

Only the multi dose vaccines have the preservative Thimerisol (containing mercury) in the batch. If you get a single dose shot, there is no mercury. If you're worried, ask for the single dose, even though the type of mercury in Thimerisol (ethyl mercury) is not the same as the hind that can cause CNS damage (methyl mercury.) Get the shot.

Get vitamin D not the flu shot. Dr. John Cannell, a cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington, recommends avoiding the flu shot and taking vitamin D instead.


In early April of 2005, after a particularly rainy spring, an influenza epidemic (epi: upon, demic: people) exploded through the maximum-security hospital for the criminally insane where I have worked for the last ten years.

However, as the epidemic progressed, I noticed something unusual. First, the ward below mine was infected, and then the ward on my right, left, and across the hall - but no patients on my ward became ill. All of the patients on my ward had been taking 2,000 units of vitamin D every day for several months or longer. Could that be the reason none of my patients caught the flu?

Epidemic Influenza And Vitamin D

The Cochrane Database – an objective, gold-standard assessment of available evidence has plainly stated, in TWO STUDIES, that there is no data to support efficacy in children under two, and in adults. Even the former Chief Vaccine Officer at the FDA states: “there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.” Liking the idea of being protected from the flu does not equate to being protected from the flu. That’s essentially what your vaccine-promoting doctor (or pharmacist) is engaging in – promoting an idea.

A Shot Never Worth Taking: The Flu Vaccine

The American public is largely unaware that there is a vaccine court known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must now sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached.

...85 of the 116 cases settled were for injuries and deaths due to the flu vaccine, making the flu vaccine the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., harming and killing more people than all the other vaccines put together.

THE FLU VACCINE RACKET

What people do not know is that flu vaccines are nearly useless in preventing flu, they will cause the flu, and they often result in nervous system damage that can take years for the body to repair. Other nations chuckle at Americans' infatuation with the flu vaccine. The joke would indeed be funny, if it weren't for the damaging effects caused by the vaccine.

Time for the Flu Vaccine? Think Again

The entire vaccine program in the United States is a scam and pretty much pure evil in its intent! You really believe the government and big pharma wants a healthy vibrant nation of individuals? They want exactly the opposite. They want to poison you from birth to make you sick and dependent on their medications and programs for life. United States is the most medicated nation on Earth and yet we are by leaps and bounds the sickest. And now they are pushing flu shots on pregnant women!!! I hate to say it but the United States is being orchestrated by a few satanic/demonic families.

Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist, US FDA says, "There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway." But, an ignorant person will say it's safe and that it has helped millions of people only because an MD told them so, wink wink suckers.

I didn't take a shot, but due to how small the office is, I caught a week-long strain that seemed to have a couple of "waves". The first wave was almost like a mini-flu: I felt like crud a couple days, and then went to work with a runny nose.

Came home Monday night feeling better (with only a slight runny nose). Woke up Tuesday, and BAM! I had a high fever, shivers, and wacky sleep patterns (one minute I'd be awake, the next I fell asleep or lost conscious). Solid food would have been a mistake. Had a lot of vertigo.

I'm still feeling it a bit - My lymph nodes were swollen Friday, but they seem to almost be normal now.

In short: Nope, still no flu shot.

Never had the flu shot either.

We do more harm to our immune systems than good.

Never had the flu shot, and never came down with symptomatic flu. However I did have to finally get the shot last week due to a work commitment with a client, unfortunate but the client is a hospital.

Interesting about the Vitamin D!!
We take it year-round.
Much less from April to October, when we get sunshine.
From November to March, we take 5000 IU.

We're rarely sick, maybe one cold every 18 months.
Maybe I had the flu once around 1993.

it takes 2 weeks for the flu shot to be effective,,,so if anyone is unfortunate to catch the flu before that time is up will be sick......true it is somewhat of a guessing game...they mix up what they think will be the most likely strains to hit and sometimes they are way way off

I know people that get the shot every year and they still get sick.
The shot only covers the strains they guessed on months earlier.
Roll of the dice really.

I have never gotten a flu shot in my 46 years of existence. Don't plan to either.

Last year my wife and I got sick in January and we were both down for a week. It didn't seem like any flu we have heard of but we were weak as kittens.
That is the worse illness I have even experienced.
Yet I wouldn't call it a flu.

Apparently this is shaping up to be a nasty flu season too.

www.statnews.com...

What do you folks plan to do?
Shot or no shot?

No needle for me!
I think it's a guess anyway.



I`ve never gotten a flu shot in almost 60 years of my existence and I haven`t gotten the flu in almost 20 years. apparently my immune system works just fine without a lot of manmade chemical concoctions being injected into it.

that`s very interesting I`ve never gotten a flu shot and I haven`t had the flu in almost 20 years but I DO spend a lot of time outdoors, all year long.
I`ve always remembered what my grandmom said," there isn`t anything a hard days work won`t cure", or apparently in the case of the flu, prevent.

Really only 10%? I thought it was 30%.

Good points, I never thought about the debit/credit card machines and gas pumps. Maybe its better if people just wore latex gloves until the flu epidemic is over! Probably a dust mask wouldn't hurt either, lol. With all the advancement in technology, you would think the medical field would be keeping pace to protect us from these viruses.

We might as well wear latex gloves when we leave the house and dust masks! The dust masks are cumbersome and I'm sure people will look at us like we're nuts, lol. Too bad they don't have anything to put in our noses so it doesn't attract attention.
Dust masks are not in fashion, lol.
