Tioga, I have you beat in education but all of it was in biology/chemistry after college business degree. You do have a point, but you only get half the picture. You mixed with Reiley could make a happy medium that makes scientific sense.

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)! Here

Makes me wonder what you needed the advice of a doctor for if you are so educated already and distrust doctors...

We have some geniuses who figure they haven't gotten sick in the prime of their immune response proves something? Anecdotal retards.

I got it the first time at age 22 in Taiwan. I was young and fit. I thought I was going to die of starvation as I lay in my bed thinking of things because I was too weak to walk to get food. None was in the building.

The second time it hit me while I was in my 50's and it had me dry cough up blood at 1am which scared the crap out of me and put me down for almost 6 weeks. I was conditioning for a marathon at the time and thought I was in great shape.

So you can get it more than once, and now that I'm gettin' old I get the shot because it could kill a guy.

Why this paranoia about drugs?

Strange, isn't it?

I have intelligent, perfectly reasonable friends who, on the topic of vaccinations, becomes babbling idiots who spew factual nonsense and quote ridiculous studies that the found on the "Internet" about vaccinations.

The Flat Earth Society is alive and well.

Doctors cause, on average, 80,000 accidental deaths per year in the US alone.

That's just deaths.

I don't trust them, unless I have no other recourse.

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

(Calculation) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services"

Be curious to see how many of those 120,000 were due to FLU SHOTS...

Seeing this thread make the rounds again reminds me that it's time for me to get my annual flu shot.

"Man dies from accidental death caused by a Flu shot"...

To the Newswoman:

"That damned Doctor KILLED my friend when he MISSED and hit him in the EYE with the Flu shot"...

I remember the anti Malaria vaccine I was given.

"Werner, 1 in 1000 or so immediately die from the side effects within an hour from this vaccine".

"No sh!t" ????? LOL

"Yep No sh!t"

I ask "How do you tell if you're allergic or not"

"Just take it aszhole and in one hour you'll know" I was told.

LOL ......

I used to be scared of needles too, guys. If you are really brave though, they'll give you a lollipop.

If she were standing in front of me naked and it was HER, or the flu shot???...

Yep, I'd do her.

So I just had my annual reinstallment of my illuminati chip. Now I'll probably start farting chemtrails. But at least I'm less likely to get the flu--seems like a fair trade.

I figure I am the guy with the best immune system by far, seeing as how my immune system is destroying my nervous system al the time…

so a little flu won't kill me

Every year.

No reason not to, unless you have an allergy to any of the vaccine components.

Getting influenza sucks really bad.

Very interesting article by a woman who did NOT get childhood vaccines, and her experience.

If you’ve never had these illnesses, you don’t know how awful they are. I do. Pain, discomfort, the inability to breathe or to eat or to swallow, fever and nightmares, itching all over your body so much that you can’t stand lying on bedsheets, losing so much weight you can’t walk properly, diarrhea that leaves you lying prostrate on the bathroom floor, the unpaid time off work for parents, the quarantine, missing school, missing parties, the worry, the sleepless nights, the sweat, the tears, the blood, the midnight visits to the emergency room, the time sitting in a doctor’s waiting room on your own because no one will sit near you because they’re rightfully scared of those spots all over your face.
