It is advisable to have sanitary inspection not only a vaccine for the awareness and become healthy.

Hi Susan. Unfortunately the medical field requires it. Even for the medical reps! Hope u r both doing well!

After reading the comments against vaccination and the complete lack of credible evidence shown as well as the promotion of fake cures I will get the shot. It's the only responsible choice compared to the conspiracy theories and plain fraudulent alternate cures

forgive me for not being so hot on flu shots. i have had several and only had radical reations. since my last flu shot in 1997 i have not taken another. i had the flu once a few years after but it was very mild. i am a person though that could die from the flu,so i will be keeping an eye on any new information that would convince me it would behove me to get another shot. thank you..

There is credible evidence, as a Med researcher you would be expected to have the skills to find it. If you have not then you either are not very good at research or refuse to look at the research with an unbiased view point. This type of response post you have provided is merely a redherring and moving the goal posts logical falacy with a dash of strawman thrown in. Reading the post suggetsed the onus was on the anti vacination position to present credible evidence of their positive claims....

I get mine every year, had one Tuesday 9/18. So far I haven't had the flu and I don't think that is a coincidence. But to each his own!

My husband and I get one every year. (We are considered elderly now) that's what hurts not the shot.

I don't get flu shots and I don't get the flu either. I just eat healthy! Especially vitamin C, it wards off all colds. Flu shots are another "product" by Big Pharma to make another (billion) bucks. You never hear them advising to eat healthy! They don't do nutrition. They do chemicals that wreak havoc on your bodies and the environment. These medicines get into the water supply through people's urine, and guess what, it is not filtered out by municipal water plants. So everyone is drinking...

Around a third of all people with the flu don't have symptoms. You could be passing it on to an 80 year old who will die of the flu, and you won't even know you have it.

Lacie Parker Not so. The flu shot dramatically reduces your chance of catching the flu, and it dramatically reduces your chance of passing it on. It's like brakes on a car. They will fail sometimes but that doesn't mean you don't want brakes on your car. Please read about vaccines. They aren't 100%. No one claims that. They are just dramatically better than not having a vaccine.

Jacque Christy, It's very sad when you start throwing around Big Pharma Shill arguments. It simply means that you have run out of ideas. When you claim cancer was cured (which one? all 200+ of them?) you out yourself as a kook.

NaturalNews is a silly deluded conspiracy theory site. It is not a place where rational people go for information.

Would you believe, although I work in a medical-type office that gives the vaccine free to its employees, I've been so busy with my own clinic that I've not had the time to get one! We have to go through the entire check in routine like the clients do, and I just can't leave my desk long enough to get one.

I am being forced to get a flu shot against my will to keep my job. I am trying to avoid it but may have to comply to keep my job. I think it's WRONG. It's my body & I do not want a flu shot. I'm healthy & do everything I can to stay that way preventatively but having a flu shot is not something want to do.

I assume you work in healthcare. I've read that mortality for hospital acquired influenza is up to 25% - your patients are more at risk than you are. Your efforts to stay healthy are a good thing, but no one is immunity from the flu. If you catch it you could pass it on to your patients before you even experience a symptom. I sympathise with your predicament, but perhaps you're in the wrong line of work.

my sister works in healthcare and feels the same way you do. She was forced with the same choice and flat out refused the shot, which i feel was the right choice. She kept her job but her second choice was to wear a mask to cover her nose/mouth while at work, i wonder if that would work for you?

I do not view these shots as safe and I do not think the companies that profit from this blanket treatment are giving enough merit other alternatives or adopting ways to make the shots safer.
