I work in hospitals and pretty much have to get it. They can't require it but if you don't get one you have to wear a mask the entire time you are in a facility. I just let them shoot me up with everything and say f it.... one time in the last 4 yrs I felt off and tired for 2wks or so around when I got the shot and it may have been the shot's fault.... if I didn't work in hospitals I would never get one.

Remember those kids with the built in braces on their shoes, and one leg shorter than the other ?

Probably not, that was from polio. Nowadays we have Vegan conspiracy theorist who smoke, shrieking about vaccinations being a government plot...

Ah, Jim, don't you think that poor little girl preferred having polio to
the chance of suffering arsenic poisoning or becoming autistic?

Yeah, Reilly, Paralytic Polio and Post Polio Syndrome aren't that bad. Only two out of every five infants who contract Paralytic Polio die.

My brother in law told me that he wouldn't get MMR vaccines because Alex Jones said it was a government conspiracy to sterilize the population and a part of their population control plan.




I asked him what a side-effect of the mumps was?





He had no idea it was sterilization.

Had measles, mumps, tuberculosis and Scarlet Fever as a child. Still alive. Stopped having flu and colds after switching to organic raw food...The only ones I'd bother to get a vaccine against are Diphtheria and Meningitis, and that if there was an epidemics...but in the US its mostly a non-issue (well Tetanus too) Flu isn't a big problem and wouldn't want to get a vaccine--don't want to get some mouse virus RNA in...Anyway, even if you get a flu "vaccine" rabid raccoons can get ya anyway...Looking at Amerikan "doktors" and whole medical mafia I wonder if they got their rabies shots.

Flu isn't a big problem and wouldn't want to get a vaccine

Two of my patients just died from it.



They got it from young, strong carriers who visited their homes and gave it to them. The selfish visitors were pretty smug about the fact that they got the flu and they were fine. Bragging and spraying everywhere.

I know of two people who died from car accidents...
Whatever.
Rock climbing is gonna get ya too...risky, you know... When it's your time, it's your time. I don't buy american medical mafia propaganda, their pockets are so stretched out from stolen money, they're dragging them on the ground.
Your best defense against "diseases" is healthy organic food, healthy habits--NO drugs, like weed, etc--healthy sleep, no drinking, no body fat, taking vitamin C, antioxidants, eating garlic, exercise/healthy muscle mass==> your strong immune system.
I grow mean homemade kombucha brew, that stuff is immunity blaster, flu is scared of it.
My mother (who doesn't eat healthy) just had horrible flu, I was around her through entire 3 weeks, didn't get sick.

I actually know. Arguing with you is below me really.
I'm sorry if you have bad immune system due to your poor choices in life.
I used to have 5 colds a year...must be doing something right now.
Oh yeah, I majored in biology too--among other things--in my time ya know....I've done 12 years of schools above high school level. Thank ya, bye

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

If I had high body fat and stuffed my pie hole with non-raw pesticide laden crap, I'd be also very concerned with "data"...;) We got to have the data to get up from da bed in the morning! If this correct and medically approved behavior? Inquire from your "health provider".

Well, Tioga, so you've been lucky with climbing and surviving the flu, great!
Guess what? The vast majority of people who die from the latter are under
6 and over 60 so I don't think it likely yer kumbaya stew was instrumental.

I was a teacher for 30 years and was exposed to everything kids can get and after a time never got sick. I haven't had the flu since the day of my first marriage in 1968 and both were bad all the way around! I could be one of the "I don't believe in that stuff" crowd but I like to base things on evidence and science and not what my uncle or grandmother told me. I am 69 now and get a flu shot every year and recently got a shingles vaccination too... a good friend came down shingles and was miserable for a month. Sure don't want to get that one! I was young and indestructible too and know how that feels. If one is older or has previous related conditions then the evidence supports getting one, if not than you take your chances, however slight.

I'm beginning to think that all the internet has accomplished is to allow stupid people access to misinformation. With not enough education and intelligence to be able to tell fact from fiction we are ending up with thousand of little cults of quackery, paranoia and idiocy.

No sh!t, it's certainly proving itself the double edge sword.

This thread is a perfect proof that human medical experiments will not lack willing lab rat material.

Oh by the way, last time I gotten one of the "vaccines" (18 years ago) my arm got swollen like a log and I felt I was gonna meet my maker finally...the "doktor" crook (medical leech) said I was probably allergic to horse (or mouse, don't remember exact animal...just glad it wasn't a "chimp") "protein". Have fun...then, something goes wrong, many years later...a little error in your DNA somewhere...;) have fun with unnecessary substances injected in ya and being lab rat sheeple, there's no help for that. But this is America, where you have to have medical approval to take a crap, I mean...I heard it's been proven to be healthy via extensive medical research funded by (fat) taxpayers money (and laxative manufacturers)!

Tioga, did you used to be Klimmer on ST?

I was a kid when polio was rampant and was given the first run of vaccinations. Before that there were kids in the neighborhood with braces for life... after the vaccinations there were no new cases. Was that unnecessary stuff in my body? Maybe so, but the evidence doesn't support that view. But like they say, it's your choice. Clearly, vaccines have been successful in stopping many terrible diseases in our history and to scoff at the idea of any vaccines flies in the face of scientific proof and logic. The danger from disease is far greater than the danger from the vaccines for that disease, and if you did have a bad reaction to a vaccine then imagine how you would react to a full dose of the disease! But that said... if you happen to be that rare person, like Tioga seems to be, who a vaccine harms, then you are right in your caution and need to proceed carefully.... proving again that nothing is perfectly safe on this old ball of dirt and water! Be healthy my friends!
