Flu Shot « on: September 25, 2018, 04:51:08 am »
Do any of you get the seasonal flu shot? If so does it cause you any problems?
My body is so weak and battered, it feels as if flu would end me right now, so maybe getting the shot will help prevent me getting really sick this winter, from one flu strain anyway. The shot only protects you against one strain of the virus, and if the virus decides to mutate half way through the flu season, the vaccine is rendered useless. Is it worth the bother and potential risk of an uptick?.

I get them. Totally worth it.

I have gotten a flu shot for years with no negative side effects. I think it worth whatever risk there might be.

NO never! I hate any vaccines but the flu shot has mercury in it. It doesn’t prevent the flu only helps the intensity. And 1/2 the time it’s not effective towards the strain going around that year. I have influenza A in January fresh off Benzos and I was fine. Just eat well, and take care of your body.
