I recently was forced to get a flu shot. I got sick for a couple of days. They say you can't get the flu from it. If it is not a live virus vaccine, you can't, you just get the symptoms. What a relief to know I just felt like I had the flu!
Personally, i don't think anyone should be forced to get a vaccine for something for the sole purpose of protecting others. I don't get the flu. The logic is, if everyone gets the flu shot every year, we won't pass it to each other. The problem with this logic is that some people who would never suffer with the actual flu are made sick from the flu shot. In extreme cases, you can be paralyzed or suffer permanent nerve damage.
Is this some egalitarian notion whereby we all share equally in getting ill?
There is a new law in CA whereby young girls can get HPV vaccines without their parents even knowing or giving the girl information on its risk.
There was a woman whose child was taken because she didn't want to give her daughter antipsychotics which can be dangerous. From the story I heard, she had taken the child to another doctor.
I am afraid the more the government gets involved with healthcare, the worse this will get.
I resent being told what I must put into my body especially when it includes aluminum, mercury, fragments of bacteria and viruses and who knows what else.
