The My Little Pony Killer: In before some fool starts spouting off that the flu shot gets people sicker than the actual flu would have./they are completely full of shiat
andychrist420: I had the flu for 3 weeks. Still worth not getting a shot.
RoxtarRyan: Fark this year. I got the damn flu twice in 2 1/2 months. I just celebrated my first full week of feel well.
Lipspinach: andychrist420: I had the flu for 3 weeks. Still worth not getting a shot.Why?Because autism?
PawisBetlog: RoxtarRyan: Fark this year. I got the damn flu twice in 2 1/2 months. I just celebrated my first full week of feel well.I had the worst year in about a decade this year. Couple colds, one nasty flu type bug that gave me a cough that still hasn't gone away almost two months later.
Generation_D: Lipspinach: andychrist420: I had the flu for 3 weeks. Still worth not getting a shot.Why?Because autism?No, see, the dumb made up reasons modern-day people panic over not getting a shot are just as dumb as the overblown reasons people do get a shot.If you work in medical/hospital, around sick people non stop, or teach in grade school then yeah, get a shot.Normal adults going to work every day? Thats overblown. Get it if you personally want it, but please stop turning that into a mandate for everyone. Not everyone shares your concerns or your keen sense of knowing whats better for everyone else.If I get sick I'll stay home, trust me.Meanwhile, please stop quoting Jenny McHoohaw as a reason everyone who doesn't want a shot is a wingnut. We're not. She is. She speaks for herself, and the 3 people that still care what she thinks, because 1) boobs, 2) she was married to Jim Carey for a while, and 3) was on MTV two decades ago as some kind of celebrity who imagined she was "smart," but only when compared to the normal strain of MTV celebrity. We should immunize against celebrities talking medical advice. Oprah would need a whole medical lab to innoculate people against the dumb mass market hyped up medicine she's unleashed over the years. McCarthy is small time compared to that idiot.
Summoner101: There were a couple weeks there that the flu had most hospitals' inpatient wards full up. Fortunately, it subsided, but unless I'm mistaken most of the doom and gloom about this flu season came from those couple weeks.
CruJones: The My Little Pony Killer: In before some fool starts spouting off that the flu shot gets people sicker than the actual flu would have./they are completely full of shiatDidn't get flu shot... didn't get flu. Girlfriend and family all got flu shots, all got flu./anecdotal evidence is anecdotal//seriously though, this year it seemed that way for many people
douchebag/hater: For all of you claiming to have gotten the flu vaccine and still got influenza:The vaccine is designed to treat what the WHO *thinks* will be the dominant strain of influenza for the coming year.This does not mean that they couldn't be wrong or that you could catch a DIFFERENT strain not covered by the shot.Come on folks; this isn't heavy lifting.
de_Selby: I've never had a flu shot, and I can't remember the last time I had the flu./anecdotal etc.
