Personally, I never get a flu shot, and neither does any member of my family. There are a number of reasons behind my decision. --Mark Sisson

My 6 year old gets the flus shot every year. Whatever the effectiveness 1.5%, 11%, 50% I'll take it. Any percentage is better than the alternative. If she gets the flu she will end up in intensive care and she may not survive. I would love to think that her recent switch to primal living will help her lungs but I won't take any chances.
For me and my other daughter, we didn't get the shot. I don't rely on anyone else to protect my child. Sure I inwardly rant and seethe every time another parent sends their child to school with an obvious cold but I can't put her in a bubble. I'm lucky that she has a good immune system and doesn't get sick easily. Unfortunately no about of vitamin D is going to help her once she does.

The Media Manipulates Flu Vaccine Facts
Wow~ is there a lot of finger pointing on this thread!
Have never had a flu shot~ not planning on getting one this year either~ haven't had the flu in at least 30 years~ can't see the reasoning for me.
FWIW, I'd rather get the flu and know it, than to get the shot and walk around not knowing I'm some sort of 'Typhoid Mary' and infecting people with compromised immune systems~ The vaccine doesn't stop someone from being a carrier~ just stops them from getting certain (not all) varieties of flu~ IMO, not worth the bother.
on the first page, i told the people: flu shots are a racket, you don't need them, and i haven't been sick since 1994.
and then the people wanted to add what they think, how they feel; but this was not necessary.
lmao... that's great. Thanks for the laugh dado.
