    Wow. I think that some people need to try this new type of thing on these forums. It is called agreeing to disagree with being childish and calling names. I don't consider not getting the flu vaccine selfish in any way. I call it taking care of me and my daughter. I do what I feel is right for me and my child. I don't feel like that is selfish at all.

    We don't vaccinate for anything. It's not a risk I'm willing to take with our health.

    Yes please. That way we wouldn't have to see your face and it would make talking more difficult for you too. Double bonus.

    Sorry, kenn. You set yourself up for that one.

    When people with your values(not saying you specifically nor is it specific to just this one topic) don't get their way they turn to the government to get their way by force. That's why I brought up legislation.

    Not getting vaccinated doesn't mean I don't care about my neighbors or am socially irresponsible. That's just your opinion.

    I can kind of understand those who don't get flu vaccinations. Unless you're in regular contact with young children/babies or the elderly, catching the flu is a mild inconvenience and pretty much an accepted part of life.

    The one that gets me angry is parents who don't vaccinate their kids because of the "health risks". Newsflash: a child who is not vaccinated faces far greater "health risks" in the form of measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphteria, tetanus, whooping cough etc. And they make that decision based on a discredited "study" that linked autism to vaccinations and the anecdotal evidence of "I never got vaccinated/know someone who didnt' and didn't get sick so it's not necessary".

    well, with my immune system, I appreciate it when others get the flu shot. If you do then thank you.

    My mom had my brother and I vaccinated as babies, but only after we'd grown some and she felt we were ready for it. No pumping us full of needles at birth and such.

    We do use zappers (electrical boxes that kill viruses, bacteria and funguses) so that probably helps too.

    There are no anti-bodies you can produce to be immune to a virus. There are millions of different viruses, which one will you get a shot for?
    Once you fight off hte flu shot, your temporary 'anti-bodies' are gone.
    So, why inject your body with poison just to see if it's able to fight this off? It's irony.
