Never!!! I will not expose my body to countless chemicals to receive a shot that is made from LAST YEARS FLU....I will eat well...take vitamin D3..lots of vitamin C....garlic capsules....etc....the flu shot ifff used should only be in extreme cases when someone can not for severe health reasons get sick like elderly ....even then their is no garreetee that it is not hurting more than helping...

There are no guarantees in life, but influenza kills thousands of people every year. Even if you feel fine you could still be passing the flu on to someone who could die from it. The vaccine doesn't work well in the elderly so the best way for the elderly to protect themselves is to not be around unvaccinated people.

actually, the best way for the elderly to protect themselves is for them and their grandkids to have had the flu shot

Vaccines? Ahhh, Maybe not such a good idea. In fact a VERY BAD idea. Better do your homework before exposing your kids to vaccine$. You can start here: http://anh-europe.org/documents and.

The Chiropractic industry would like to see itself as scientific and mainstream. However, anti-vaccine, anti-medicine and pro-nonsense opinions like yours make that highly unlikely. When you say "do your homework" all you mean is read some scary anti-vaccine propaganda. That's not homework. That's not research.

I'm sorry to say that the "cause" of encouraging people to be injected with mercury and other toxic elements in the name of stopping the flu sorely is misplaced.

Let me ask you, would you allow Monsanto to create a "cause" to encourage everyone to eat their toxic dangerous and untested GMO soy products or corn that have been outlawed in Europe but still legal in the US because of their $$ clout?

Why would you conceivably allow the pharmaceutical industry a voice to pitch their goods as one of your "causes" then? Do you vet the sponsors of causes? Were you aware that pharma's income eclipses that of the rest of the Fortune 500 COMBINED? A lot of that comes from vaccines.

Please do your homework on this critical subject. I suggest you start here (the following links I copied and pasted from my comment on the cause in question at http://www.causes.com/causes/787378-the-immunization-initiative/actions/1664769?utm_campaign=more_actions):

and http://prn.fm/2012/08/01/30-years-secret-official-transcripts-show-uk-government-experts-cover-vaccine-hazards-sell-vaccines-harm-kids/ "

Your policy on this could make the difference in saving thousands of kid's lives.
Please stop the pro-vaccine "causes" immediately and set up a screening/vetting process of your own. Yes I know that requires some effort. But it will be worthwhile. Get some advise from independent investigative journalists like democracynow.org, Gary Null, or Greg Palast.

Thanks. I would like to hear your response.

I agree with you John. My daughter runs and works almost full time for Arnica.org.uk which helps to Promote Natural Immunity and educating about the onslaught of vaccines and the growing amount of us getting damaged by them. Strengthening the immune System is best although it can be expensive for many people to buy good quality food without Aspartame etc.etc. Education is so important.

I was diagnosed with Guillian-Barre’ syndrome earlier this year it is a disease that attacks the bodies nerves and paralysis
Sets in I was told to never get a flu shot now because I had this because flu shots and other immunizations can trigger this syndrome my wife now has decided against flu shots for our kids this year and our dr did not have much to say with her reasons

Sorry! Information from medical sources that have looked at the studies and the statistics, I have decided that taking the flu shot may not be in my best health interest. Used to do it, now I don't and I protect my health in other ways and I haven't had the flu for over ten years. I'm not saying, I will never take another flu shot, but I don't plan to.

Well, you've been lucky for ten years. But when you are exposed again and are not vaccinated you could be less lucky. If that happens you could be unlucky enough to pass it on to someone less luck than you, who could die from it. Please read these comments. There are quite a few commenters who would likely die from the flu. We need to protect them. The flu is most dangerous to infants, the elderly, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems like people undergoing...

There are quite a few commenters who would likely die from the flu. We need to protect them. The flu is most dangerous to infants, the elderly, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems like people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer. If you passed it on to them they could be very unlucky indeed.

I'll try my best not to encounter anyone like that, and stay in my house the way we used to.... before we didn't have time to be sick... and the pharmaceutical industry invented ways for us to exist day-to-day and push ourselves to an unhealthy limit by working for a system that needn't exist any way you candy coat it.

Nikki, by the time you realise you have influenza you have already had it for two days and potentially passed it on to countless people. But don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine, who cares about anyone else eh?

just what were the source of these objection's to vaccine's and what are the "studies" that have placed doubt on vaccines? You have made no real statement, just claimed that you know some sound information. Please stop claiming you know anything at all about an issue like this, especially if you will not include your references. Being part of the conspiracy to stop people taking vaccines is a deadly game, and if you have convinced anyone not to take a vaccine the blood will be o your hands....

Well Ben, where is your EVIDENCE that flu shots work? You have not because it is IMPOSSIBLE to know what the outcome would have been if the people taking the vaccinations had not done so. are you so invested emotionally to believing in the shots that you cannot see logic, or listen to other possible views. Wow! you are a modern-day scientists, aren't you. How about you stop telling people what to say when you are not a scientists either, but are only parroting what alleged scientists are...

DO NOT GET A FLU SHOT.. I am absolutely against these vaccinations. The people who make up the formula for the flu shot each year won't even give the shot to their own kin. Research this at NaturalNews.com if you think I am off base. Flu shots were originated by the medical community to make money!

sorry I will never be vaccinated I prefer to do it homoepathically.

Daniel Weinstein

  • Saron Clark

Being vaccinated homoeopathically is identical to not being vaccinated at all. Homeopathic nostrums are diluted way past the point where there is none of the substance in it. Believing that homeopathy will protect you from serious illness is like saying that you're going to put your faith in Tinkerbell to protect you.

Before you get a flu shot, or any immunizaton, ask to see and READ, in it's entirety, the Package Insert -- NOT just the copy flyer they give everyone --but the list of ingredients in the shot you are about to be injected with. Don't you deserved to be informed of what you are agreeing to inject straight into your blood stream, by-passing all your normal immune system defenses? Once you see aluminum, thimerosol (mercury), formaldehyde, and lots of other goodies your body is never supposed to...

Once you see aluminum, thimerosol (mercury), formaldehyde, and lots of other goodies your body is never supposed to have injected straight into the blood stream, you may want to give it some more thought before you proceed. A healthy immune system will keep you from getting the flu, or getting it badly. There are homeopathics that will very quickly help you get rid of a flu if you feel one coming on -- safe for all ages, with no side effects. Just saw a article today about a study that says you are much more likely to get Alzheimer's if you have 5 or more flu shots in a row yearly. I will NEVER get, or allow my children to get, flu shots. Be informed, and do your research yourself.
