I get flu shots yearly and I’ve never had any problem with them.
Of course you don’t. The vaccines are made from an inactivated virus and unless one is allergic to eggs, there is no reason why anyone should get sick from them.
I usually get very upset at people who spread nonsense about flu shots, but for some reason I am completely incapable of getting upset at missmac.
I’m not trying to be a jerk on this topic - I guess I just have really strong opinions. 10 years ago I probably would have thought the opposite, but from what I’ve seen, and read, and the many stories I’ve heard from people - both for and against both of these things - I’ve just come to my own conclusions.
Many of you have made some really good points, and obviously as new information appears - it helps me come to a conclusion that is more probable.
It seems a lot of people have had difference experiences with vaccines
My choice to stop vaccinations (including the most recent one in Toronto H1N1) came from my understanding that the human body is capable of fighting infection on its own - and that allowing your body to perform its own functions without interference will strengthen your natural defenses/immunity to future infections. I eat really well, get plenty of sleep, and stay active - and most days I feel strong, alert, and have plenty of energy. I cant remember the last time I was sick, Its been a very long time.
Awww, thanks George :D I don’t want to make you mad!
