The Reason I Won't Be Getting A Flu Shot

Is because I heard it both on the news and it has been published in several papers - the flu shot is not the same strand of flu that is currently going around.

It was reported on CNN that the flu that is currently circulating is one that the companies who make the vaccine could not produce an appropriate vaccine for which the FDA would approve so what they did was just remake and circulate the flu vaccine from last year. That flu vaccine bears no resembalance to the current flu.

So I see no point in getting a shot or having FluMist shoved up my nose or the nose of my children.

It is reported that even if you have the flu shot or get FluMist it is not going to help you fight off the flu that is going around.

This is what they do not tell you because they don't read you the fine print.

So go ahead and scramble to get your shot or get something shoved up your nose because if you going to catch the flu, there will be nothing you can do about it.

As Dita said - much hand washing, lots of rest, good meals. Just be concious about safe health practices in general should keep you healthy.

I'm not going to hole up in my house or hole my children up to keep them "safe". I will practice safe health with them and make sure they are dressed weather appropriate.

I went out and bought Little Miss the gummie bear vita C with Echanacia. She loves them to bad that she can not take it for more than 6 weeks in a row at a time. But it will help keep her well during some of the bad time.

I am fine with my immunizations shots. I suppose it's my fault for thinking that some people have common sense.

Good thing I don't have that working wand.
