as CG stated above, I will be getting the regular flu shot this year. I get it every year. My immune system is really low and I have never caught the flu from getting the shot. I think it has helped me tremendously because every year, everyone around me gets the flu except me.
I WILL NOT be getting the swine flu shot. In my opinion, it is still too new.
last time I had the flu, there was 2 different types going around. 1 was a upper GI infection and the other was a lower IG. I GOT BOTH :(((
after that i get the shot every year and so far so good. i even finely talked my b/f into getting it this year. only took me 3 years to get him to get the shot (he is a big baby) LOL
I saw some who said they get the flu after taking the shot. the shot can not cause you to get the flu. most times its do to the fact that there are so many different types of flu going around your shot didnt cover you for the type you got.
so as in everything thing else study up and know what types of flu are in your area and make sure your flu shot covers that type of flu.
as for the N1H1 shot, it was in the news here that if you work in the med feild you will have to get it or you can lose your job. i find this to be a crock of.... yep thats just wrong if you ask me.
its like if your forst into it, then if they have troubles who is going to pay for it? hmmm i bet there boss wont. or if it kills someone. well there is no amount of payment that will compensate for that.
its like geees last time i looked we did live in the USA. and freedom of choice well it seems to be flying out the window here now.
sorry for the long post. but it just blows my mind and makes me so mad, when we are dictated to about
our health. then there are us folks who are dying due to diseases and cant get a Dr. to treat us properly.
wishing everyone well this flu season
still looking for answers.
Remember that advice is free, its your choice what you do with it. :)
