Response to samplegirl (Reply #35)

40. The chances of getting GB from the flu shot are about a million-to-one.

I'm sorry that you were that one, but there's no evidence that getting GB from the flu shot is anything other than an infinitesimal risk. The chances of getting it from a bacterium or other infection is thousands of times higher.

That's probably why your post was considered anti-vax. Your experience, while truly horrifying, isn't representative of the norm and GB is *not* a risk associated with the shot often enough to require them to advertise it as such.

Source: the CDC

"If there is an increased risk of GBS following flu vaccination it is small, on the order of one to two additional GBS cases per million doses of flu vaccine administered."
