57. Oh thanks, it's just a lesser Flu, I'm so relieved at that thought of 3 days of misery
instead of 3.25 days of misery.

Do you even realize what you are saying?

You seem pretty enthusiastic about taking the vaccine, but this weekened, I ran into about 45 differnt people who affirmed that would never submit to a Flu Shot, have not been i'll in many years, and all are currently healthy.

Now if medical science would just answer the question as why people like me and my Organic Farmer, Hippie friends don't catch the influenza virus, while the stressed out worker drones in the rat race with a crushing mortgage and three iPod's do, then maybe I would not be so sceptical about the vaccines efficacy, or it's safety.

The anti vaccer's has good reasons to shun them, simply because they are about as well researched as the long term effects of eating GMO foods. The Corporations make craploads of money on them, the Government get to play the guardian of the poor, helpless masses, and the public gets a chance to believe in something other than their bodie's own ability to heal.
