You know, a nurse on here told us that strangers can just come in a visit the patient; and that is so true, so I don't see how forcing heath care workers to vaccinate themselves is going to "protect" the patient if a stranger can just come in and spread something. One solution for health care workers to avoid forced vacinations is that they could ban all outside contact from visitors and just closely monitor all heath care workers of there vital signs at each shift with the use of the laser gun that reads the body temperature. They do this to everybody on there way to China.

Here is a good list of the ingredients in the fluMist and other vaccines. I did not know FluMist had MSG in it; that's banned (if I'm not mistaken) to use as a food additive. Also, do your research on polysorbate 80 which is in FLUARIX that stuff can make it across the blood brain barrier. Hmm, why would polysorbate 80 be in a vaccine? I know in the pubmed database they used polysorbate 80 to coat nanoparticles.

Here we are a month later and other people at work are going down with the flu. I haven't yet, knock on wood. And all of us vaccinated ones marched through shedding our live-vaccine-induced virus (if that's even true) quite some time ago. I doubt our shedding was responsible for the current cases. It'll be interesting when everyone gets back to see who were the ones who got the vaccine and who were the ones who didn't.
My Rheumatologist who is very level headed & not prone to extremes one way or the other, along w/ at least two healthcare associations I belong to related to some of my specific health issues all say that the nasal flu vaccine is a NO NO NO NO NO for those vulnerable populations & that anyone who's had it should strongly avoid any exposure to said populations for at least 21 days. Period.

I'm rather mystified as to why this nasal version is even being offered when it puts ME & others who are more vulnerable at greater risk - because people who are often completely uninformed go & get it & then walk around exposing everyone to the live flu virus.


I'd be not a bit surprised if many of those around you at work ended up w/ the flu because of your uninformed & therefore, IMHO, careless attitude/exposure to them.

People with a compromised immune system should not get the flu mist because it is a live vaccine.
