If you do not want a shot take the nasal spray

PLEASE don't believe the Urban Myth about the flu shot...it is simply not true..we inject with a dead virus and it does not replicate...ever not possible cannot happen
If you have the flu after taking the shot you have already been exposed ...period
The flu mist is a live virus BTW


And for those of you that got sick after a flu shot, BandVol says he knows better that you

the package insert: "The most frequently reported adverse reactions are mild hypersensitivity reactions (such as rash), local reactions at the injection site, and influenza-like symptoms"

and your own CDC who is promoting these vaccines:

Of course a few people develop side effects. It's a foreign substance being put into your body. People handle it differently. Some people can't handle Advil. That doesn't mean that the rest of us can't use it to get rid of a headache.

And Bandvol specified that he was talking about the injection. The point is that even with the mist, it is extremely unlikely that you will get the flu from the flu vaccine.

Considering that BandVol does work in the healthcare field, he or she DOES know better than you. And as another poster stated who was also in the healthcare field, the FluMist is an extremely weak form of the virus that cannot live in the human body due to the heat.

But keep living in your bubble.
