I wanted to respond to your post on the flu vax thread without bumping that monster up. Hopefully it will die soon. You said:
"In Oz all the healthworkers have to get it. I've even had it when I had a cold and it never bothered me. I have to laugh at all the people on this thread and the other one who say everyone they know who had the vaccine got sick. If that were true the entire Australian health worker population would be off sick during the month that the mass vaccination occur.
Some people have said some heartless and selfish things in this thread. I don't for a second believe they mean it. I think it's just internet boasting. Or maybe I'm just optimistic that the things people have said don't reflect their reality."
You are a very sensible, kind and generous person. Please keep your optimism in tact as long as possible. It helps if you don't read these boards too often or take them too seriously.
Nice to meet you,
