The reason I ask if you got a flu shot is everyone I asked who has/had the flu this year all said they didn't get the flu shot this year -- that's more than a dozen now BTW.
I get the flu shot every year. I have young kids around a lot and my wife has an impaired immune system. The shot is costs me nothing (clinic) and I've never gotten the flu even though I've been around more than a few folks that have it (knock on wood) -- the grand kids bring every crawling crud home with them from school.
I don't blame people for getting one. I may even get one next year. I don't think vaccinations are all useless.
Still I have trouble trusting pharm companies that invent diseases, spend millions on lobbyists, and get their own top execs into positions of influence within the FDA.
As an aside, I happen to know the daughter of someone who was one of the most powerful people in the industry. Their family is well known. She was even asked to go on Oprah to discuss her family if you can believe that, but her father (still alive in his 90s) said he'd sue her for everything she has if she spoke out.
Anyway - she will tell you the corruption is beyond what you can imagine. Anyway, feel free to take that with a grain of salt, but dig a little deeper into the industry and its practices, and you will begin to smell a rat.
