I work in the healthcare sector, literally have sick patients coughing,breathing etc on me daily at my job. I've refused the vaccines every year I've worked here and have no intention of ever getting it.
I don't believe in the flu or H1N1 vaccine and for me, it's not like your typical childhood vaccines that have been around for decades.

Every year the governement changes the recipe for their flu vaccines and I want nothing to do with them.
I'm a big believer in taking Vitamin D supplements to get me through flu season.

It's people like you that remind me not to get one. I know of doctors that feel the same way

I received my flu vaccine last Friday. I am glad it was a combination of three vaccines in one. It was very simple and I experienced no soreness in my arm at all. I always make sure I get the flu vaccine every year now since I skipped it about 5 years ago and caught the "real flu" that year. I hope I never have to go through that agony again. I am grateful for modern medicine and all the benefits it affords us. I would not want to go back to those early days of yesteryear before modern medicine myself, although that's what a lot of people seem to be doing. I personally think it's foolish, but I understand everyone's entitled to their own opinion too.
