Circusdog320: Comments on the article are far more scarier than the flu!
Madbassist1: Madbassist1: hstein3: Madbassist1: hstein3: Lizsavage: Flu shots bad. Hand Sanitizer overuse, worse. Anti bacterial everything = you gonna die fool.because getting sick (i.e. exposing your immune system to germs) is a good thing. Constantly preventing yourself from being exposed to germy things builds your immune system...That which doesnt kill you makes you stronger...seriously.that last sentence should say exactly the opposite of what it does...sheesh.
WarszawaScream: The one year I DIDN'T get my Flu shot, I got H1N1. That was three days of me laying on the floor of my living room pretty much incapacitated.EVERYONE around me is getting sick - mom and dad had a nasty cold, I came down with something ugly over New Year's, two of my friends I think caught it from me before I realized I was sick, a bunch of my coworkers are falling like flies, everyone local I have on my FB are complaining of getting sick... yeah suffice it to say I ran out on Christmas Eve to get my Flu shot and I'm thanking my lucky stars.GET YOUR FLU SHOT.
hstein3: Egg allergy? They're making flu vaccines that aren't made in eggs, but you'd probably have to ask your doctor to specifically source it; no clue whether the local Walgreen's/CVS/etc. clinic is that careful.
TwilightZone: Avoid touching your face and gargle twice a day (last from a study of cold/flu transmisson among Japanese school children -- lower rates for among those who gargled 2x/day -- falls into the category of couldn't hurt/might help)
