Quoting L&B +1:" What are your thoughts and feelings on the flu issue this year? I just read there have been 18 children ... [snip!] ... guess your decision not to get your family the flu shot? Why or why not? I havent heard how many of those kids had the shot!"
No. One of the things they are saying is that the flu shot doesnt even have the same strain as whats going around in it so it wouldnt matter. They are also saying that from years of having the flu shot the flu just keeps mutated so being vaxed doesnt matter too... theyre saying alot of things... so far there are 15,000 cases, do you really think all those people are unvaxed?
We're still not getting it and my husband is a cable guy that goes in and out of homes...he will probably bring it home, we'll get sick and then we'llg et better.... 18 deaths is a small number compared to how many people are in the united states. Like I said to my friend, how many people a year die from coconuts falling on their head?
People are also saying that the 18 that died doesnt mean every single one died FROM the flu, they could have had under lying helath issues and the flu is what caused something to shut down or irritate something else.
