No Flu shot for me!

Like I trust an unlabeled injectable overseen by tyrannical government...let alone labeled products!

BTW, did you know the present vaccine does not protectagainst the flu causing this epidemic?

Good food, good exercise, good sleep, and Vitamin D3.

Done.

Agree. All of the flu vaccines are trash.

How the government and Big Pharma can both say that these vaccines are safe is an outright lie. Health care prides itself on making recommendations on "evidence based medicine." There is none at all for the flu vaccines.

over 64% of the population refuses flu shots

CDC does not count adult deaths.. children's deaths are rising in 47 states making this an epidemic year (20 child deaths to claim epidemic per state.. so what is that 47 x 20 about 1K child deaths so far.. no count on adults.., NY has declared a state of emergency, and as ER rooms are filling, some states din't have enough doses to go around..

Absolutely correct. NO FLU SHOT for me either - ever.

As the sheeples stand in line to get the flu (when they never even had it in the first place), I will shun such stupidity.

If I'm going to get the flu then I want to get it NATURALLY - not through a needle.

Here's my defense: Lots of raw Jalapeno peppers - with food of course!

I haven't been sick since I started eating them over 2 years ago.

Jalapeno peppers: One of god's greatest gifts to man.

Here's a little poem I made: Some like it hot, but germs do not!

no arguing with fact and science

Flu shots work. I have pretty good education in biology, and as long as it is dead ran with an intact protein coat, the flu shot can make you more immune. If the government was not regulating them, however, the prices would be lowered greatly.

The vaccines "work," but not very well.

Findings
We screened 5707 articles and identified 31 eligible studies (17 randomized controlled trials and 14 observational studies). Efficacy of TIV (trivalent inactivated vaccine) was shown in eight (67%) of the 12 seasons analyzed in ten randomized controlled trials (pooled efficacy 59% [95% CI 51—67] in adults aged 18—65 years). No such trials met inclusion criteria for children aged 2—17 years or adults aged 65 years or older. Efficacy of LAIV was shown in nine (75%) of the 12 seasons analyzed in ten randomized controlled trials (pooled efficacy 83% [69—91]) in children aged 6 months to 7 years. No such trials met inclusion criteria for children aged 8—17 years. Vaccine effectiveness was variable for seasonal influenza: six (35%) of 17 analyses in nine studies showed significant protection against medically attended influenza in the outpatient or inpatient setting. Median monovalent pandemic H1N1 vaccine effectiveness in five observational studies was 69% (range 60—93).

Yes, they do work, BUT....

They have to know which strain will be coming around. I got my last flu shot several years ago and everyone who got the shot that year got the flu. Predicting which strain will be coming out the next year is a crap shoot. I won't get one now because I know the stuff in it can cause Alzheimer's and Bell's Palsy-- and who can be sure what else? I don't care what the CDC says.
The only way I would get one is if I knew I was going to be caring for an elderly person or living with one or working around really sick people who's immune systems are weak....to protect them from getting it.

Yes, this is true.

Yes, this is true.

The flu...big deal.

The flu...big deal. No idea why people panic and think they need these vaccinations.

The flu isn't the end of the world and I actually enjoy the sympathy from my wife. ;)

I got the shot under protest.

Where I work it is either get the shot or wear a surgical mask for 12 hours a day for four months. I would not be able to manage that well.

I asked for and received the perishable type. The nurse smiled and said, "Oh, the one without mercury".

It is usually available if you ask for it.

I would not get it either if not for the losing battle and choices I was given.

I stopped getting the flu when I stopped getting the shot.

I don't even get bad colds anymore.

Eating well, being active and being a more positive person really helps to stay well. I also meditate on a regular basis which greatly helps with reducing stress which we know leads to all kinds of health issues.

Vitamin D3 and

sunshine!

Me, either!

EVER!

I'm not sick and know of very few that are.

If not for the sensationalism in news I would have never known there was an "epidemic"!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

9/11 Truth.

Do you know anybody who has the flu?

I don't. I don't know a single person who has gotten the flu this yer. And if you do, so what? It's the FLU.

I got the flu shot a couple of times before the swine flu "epidemic", but I'm never getting flu shots again. The regular seasonal flu vaccine now contains the H1N1 (swine flu) strain, but they don't even tell you that. Why are they pushing these shots so hard? And why do they contain H1N1 every year?

Ann in Florida

Media is sure...

...using fear 24/7 to get people to get the shot! I wonder how much $$$ the companies make each year off this stuff.

Why would anyone get a flu

Why would anyone get a flu shot? It contains mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum, cow blood, chicken embryo, anti-biotics, sugar, monkey tissue etc.

As long as you believe some "bug" is making you sick, and ignoring the REAL reasons why people get sick, you will buy into the vaccine to prevent an imaginary bug.

We breathe polluted air, drink polluted water, physically stressed out, we eat pasteurized, steroid-hormone-chemical injected foods, that are processed over cooked and dead and then wonder why we get sick. (cooked foods have been link to causing cancer)

Animals in the world don't have flu seasons because they eat their natural diets. When we bring them into our homes and feed them our garbage they begin to get the diseases we get. Coincidence? Nope...

WAKE UP!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Vitamin D

There seems to be more and more evidence that people become susceptible to flu primarily because of vitamin D deficiency during the Winter months, because of inadequate exposure to sunlight.

See, for example, this article from Dr. Mercola: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/11/1...

In the Willamette Valley of Western Oregon...

I take 5000 IU daily of Vitamin D3...not sick here and feel invigorated!
