Re: Flu shot?

I haven't had the flu in years and Sambuca fixed that right up then. I'm not interested in this or much of what the "healthcare" industry has to offer.

You're losing your mojo...you need to step up your linking game. If you're interested I offer a linking boot camp the last Thursday of every month.

Re: Flu shot?

Getting the flu shot is a crap shoot anyways. There are so many different strands of it every year and that one flu shot will protect you against that one strand of flu. I think as long as you eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis, that probably is the best defense.

Re: Flu shot?

No way in hell should people be forced to get a vaccine! This is f'ing America for crying out loud! I seriously hope this isn't being considered. If somebody came to my house to force drugs into me, I'd probably shoot them.

I don't want a flu vaccine. Never got one, and never wanted one. I'd rather have the flu -- no joke.

Now, I'm not going to say I'm a healthy person -- I smoke tobacco and also umm... other tar-producing plants. I eat salty, unhealthy food. My diet is heavy in animal protein. I drink at least 2 cups of coffee per day. I sit at a desk all day for work (usually 10+ hours).

However, I like to be active outdoors, when I can. My favorite "active" outdoor activities are hiking, rock climbing and snowboarding. My longest hike was 22 miles. Other hikes are usually in the range of 5 - 15 miles. I probably go on about 5 - 10 hikes a year. I go snowboarding almost every weekend during the winter (20-30 days last year). I help my buddy cut down trees and split wood maybe once a month. I am 6'1", and I weigh 160 pounds. I am 27 years old. I haven't been to the doctor in over 10 years, and I don't take any pharmaceuticals, except for the occasional aspirin (maybe 2 per year).

So, I'd say my level of activity is somewhere between sedentary and moderate, along with a terrible diet. So far, it's been about 5 years since I got sick with anything. Like I said, I don't consider myself healthy -- just lucky I guess.

I guess the point of this post is just to say that we truly don't fully understand health.

Re: Flu shot?

Well we decided to get our daughter the swine flu shot. We called her doctor no go, my wife called her doctor no go, I called my doctor no go. So the wife calls the free clinic and they have it and its free. So she walks in and turns around and walks right out. It makes no sense we can get it free faster then trying to pay for it.

^ Lucky you could get one. Can't find the H1N1 flu shoot anywhere around here.

Get one my wife walked into the free clinic and turn right back around and left. She said the place was filled with a bunch of sick nasty looking people stacked all on each other and she figured they had a better chance of catching it there then they did if they just walked.

Re: Flu shot?

I got the seasonal flu shot at work. It's free and I've never had an issue or known anyone who has. Still haven't gotten the H1N1 for myself.

My pregnant wife and youngest child both qualified for the free H1N1 shots given by Fairfax County. They went in last Saturday and had no line. She said it was really well-run and that they probably were over-staffed. My brother is a doctor and we trust his opinion on whether or not to get the H1N1 shots. He said go for it.

Yea right. Our doctors who have the people who actually work and pay for the services cannot get enough of the shots from the ones who hand it out THE FEDERAL GOVERMENT. While the people who don't pay into the system and use the FREE Health services get a larger supply. Sounds backwards to me.

It is you who has it backwards. Seems to me if the government (the people) pays for the production of the vaccine there is no reason to let private practice doctors get it first and have them charge the public for it again. They are more than welcome to do business with the pharmaceutical companies that produce them to get some.
