Flu shot?

Do you get a flu shot? What about the new swine flu vaccine? Will you be getting it? Should people be forced to get one, especially those in the health care field? Talk about it.

Re: Flu shot?

I'am 45 , and never really get sick . I have never had a flu shot < maybe as a kid > ? I guess I will take my chances and let the elderly and kids get them as I think they are at greater risk ? I'am not always trusting of Washington , but if the CDC thinks we all need them , I will not bitch about it ... not that I'm an expert or MD . Hopefully we do not get a major outbreak .

Re: Flu shot?

Def NOT getting the swine flu shot. It was pushed out way too quickly, and not researched enough.

Last swine flu vaccine was handled similarly and I think quite a bit of people had adverse neurological effects. I know science is better now, but I will take my chances. I might get the regular one; i didnt last year and I didnt get sick.

I don't and I won't, AND I got this recently. Take it for however accurate it might be....

I went to high school with this eminent physician! I received his health letter for years and never knew it. However, another of his classmates wrote to him about the H1N1 (or swine) flu virus. Below is his answer. I highly recommend reading it!

Linda,

No one should take the swine flu vaccine. It is one of the most dangerous vaccines ever devised. It contains an immune adjuvant called squalene (MF-59) which has been shown to cause severe autoimmune disorders such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf War syndrome, which killed over 10,000 soldiers and caused a 200% increase in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This virus H1N1 kills by causing a "cytokine storm," which means that it cause the body's immune system to overreact and that is why it is killing young people and is a mild disease in the elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems.) This vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real possibility of making the lethality of the virus much greater.


One's best protection is vitamin D3. One should take 5000 IU a day now and when the diseas e begins to spread increase the dose to 15,000 IU a day. Vitamin D3 modulates the immune reaction, reducing the chance of an overreaction and stimulates the body to produce what are called antimicrobial peptides, which are powerful killers of viruses that does not involve immunity. This is dose related, which means the higher the dose of vitamin D3 the better the protection. Fish oils (the best is Carlson's Norwegian lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One teaspoon a day should be sufficient. For severe symptoms, one teaspoon twice a day. Antioxidants of various kinds also help. This includes quercetin, curcumin, grapeseed extract, vitamin C and natural vitamin E. A good multivitamin/mineral such as Extend Core ( Vitamin Research Products <http://www.vrp.com/> ) is also essential.

Feel free to spread this around. People need to know how to protect themselves.

Nah, I've already had the flu. I've what they call white blood cells. They're very effective.

I have never had a Flu shot and a far as I know have never had the Flu. Now my 3 yr. old daughter is now in a pre school thing two days a week so we did get her the regular Flu shot but not the swine flu one. Like posted above I have heard and read stuff that some people can have an adverse reaction and decided it was not worth the risk. Actually the swin flu is not a shot and I think you snort it.

Re: Flu shot?

I'll be getting the regular flu shot, but staying away from the h1n1. After reading that article below I'm gonna check my multivitamins (GNC MegaMen Sport) and see how much D3 they contain.

Re: Flu shot?

I'm getting a flu shot for the first time this year, as I have very young kids in day care, and figured I should have some sort of protection not knowing what they are bringing home.

Re: Flu shot?

I have never in my entire life had a flu shoot but I'm considering this one. For now I'll take a wait and see approach with a hand sanitizer near by.

Re: Flu shot?

Very sad story about one of our own cheerleaders, and what happened to her after receiving a flu shot. I just came across it this morning... I live up in Cecil County, MD, so I'm not sure if there was any attention of this down in Ashburn, but it looks to have been run on a local news station.

Very, very sad:

Re: Flu shot?

Yep, get it. No problems ever.

This is a good year to start if you haven't in the past.
