    What Happened To Letting Your Immune System Fight It Off?

    I rarely get sick, so I must be doing something correctly. I never get flu shots and it is very rare that I take any kind of antibiotic or other medicine. I believe that if you eat healthy, keep your stress level down, and stay hydrated, your body is strong enough to fight...

    It's An Unnecessary Risk.

    In my life, I have had no respiratory illnesses but the flu once. Or was it a cold? I don't remember. Did you know it is almost impossible to tell them apart by the symptoms alone? The common cold is simply milder and of a shorter duration than the flu. In any case, I have...

    Flu Vaccine Push Already Underway; First Batch Causes Seizures In Children

    Some People Should Though.

    I have a really powerful immune system. That being said, I am 59 years old, had a heart attack at 47 and am an insulin dependent diabetic. I usually let myself forget to get a flu shot...but I really shouldn't. If my immune system decides to take a vacation, I may be in deep...

    More Dangerous Than The Flu

    As far as I can gather, flu shots can be more dangerous than the flu.  People have died from flu shots.  Being ill with the flu is no biggy, and I'd rather have a good dose of flu and have my immune system deal with it than allow some concoction to be injected into me...

    Those Darn Eggs!

    I don't get vaccines usually. I did get the pneumonia vaccine a couple years ago and didn't have adverse side effects. I've thought about it and wondered what would happen if I got the vaccine. I asked my health care provider what would happen if I got the flu shots? They said...

    Just Heard On News.........

     They are advising three flu shots this  year.   Because of my health, mainly COPD I have been advised by my doctor to get it done.   I never have, and never will.    Your thoughts ?

    I Got It Once, Never Again!!!!

    I got the flu shot once many years ago.  It will never get it again, I had the most horrible cough in my life.  It was absolutely the worst, and it lasted for a few weeks.  I can't say 100% that I got it because of the flu shot.  What a huge coincidence...

    Never Again

    I got the flu shot once. I could barely move my arm for a month and got terribly ill. I rarely get sick anymore anyways so not worth it. Also,the shot is NOT a 100% guarantee you won't still get sick.

    Forget It

    I get the flu at least once a year but still not getting the stupid shot. I know many that have gotten it and still get sick right along with me so what's the point. It is what it is and more money out of my pocket that I don't have. Besides, me + flu = vacation days!

    Useless

    Although I've worked in the nursing field for over 18 years, I think that the various flu shots are utterly useless. I've seen people get the shots, and get sick with the flu anyway. Unless they make taking them mandatory in the state I live in, I will never get one.There are...

    Even If I Wanted Them, I'm Not Allowed

    This may seem a bit extreme, but for once- I agree with the medical profession. Back in 1985, while preparing to go overseas for the first time, the military required us to be vaccinated. Amongst countless shots, one given to me was for typhoid. Not heard of a huge outbreak...
