    Nope, no flu (or any other) vaccination for me. I seem to have an immunity system that could kill small animals by itself. Last vaccination that I had was 3 years ago, I was working overseas and the company required I get a cholera vaccination and guess what? I got sick.

    Don't believe in them and never had one. They do more harm than good in my opinion. Not to mention having to stand in line with other people who are prone to getting sick or are already sick. That sounds like a great way to combat spreading disease.

    Fear mongering is a great way to make money. Some people are more susceptible to the propaganda than others.

    We immunize for the major diseases in our house but not the flu. I've had a flu shot once or twice but I didn't notice any better sickness evasion than without it so I don't bother anymore. I don't have a spleen so it's recommended I get the shot but I don't.
    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    Never had a flu shot. I rarely get sick. Washing your hands is probably the most effective thing you can do.

    It's not perfect but it's better than nothing.

    If my allegedly "bullet-proof" Primal immune system should happen to let a flu bug slip in, I would be fine. I'm young and strong. I might have a seizure or two from the fever, but I would survive. If however, I passed it along to my 86 year old Dad and he got pneumonia and died, I would never forgive myself.

    Any one of you could get that same bug and sneeze in the aisle of whole foods while shopping for soup ingredients and my Dad could walk by and the same thing would happen. You are all just so damn smug in your, "I don't need a vax, I'm tough" attitudes, you would never realize that you had KILLED a person.

    Social responsibility folks. If you live out in a cabin somewhere so you will never infect anyone else, fine, skip the vax and take your chances for you. Taking chances with someone else's life is just wrong.

    This sentence here is just so full of holes I don't even know where to start. Its not ok for us to take a chance on someone else's life but we can put our life in the hands of the makers of the vaccine with the ingredients they put in?

    1. Vaccines do not have a 100% efficacy rate. SO many people have had the shot and still get the flu.
    2. The ingredients and animal abuse they use to make the flu shot are so unethical its disgusting.


    I gotta bow out of this discussion. It just makes my blood boil.

    Vaccines. I spit.

    I'm not going to get vaccinated because someone weaker may catch a virus. The weak succumb. It's the way of the world.
