    I know I will get shouted down but one vote here for social as well as personal and family responsibility. Get vaccinated.

    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.

    This is heartless. Is this who we want to be as a community?

    I realize the idea of caring about and for anyone other than yourself may be foreign to you. That doesn't make it conflicting.
