I never got the flu after getting a shot. But I don't get one every year.

I had the flu once...a lost week of my life.

FYI, all flu shots since I have been giving them contain antigen to three strains of influenza virus. This year's contains H1N1 as well as another "A" and a "B".
Yep, don't want that one either. I take good hand washing precautions and don't go near sick people. Works for me but it is not for everyone, especially those with compromised immune systems.

Never had the flu, never had the shot. For that matter, to the best of my knowledge, I have never taken OTC drugs. Ever. Not an aspirin, Tylenol, cough syrup, nothing. I took antibiotics once for an upper respiratory infection. Oh, and antibiotics once for a tooth ache. That is it. 47 years.

People these days are way way over medicated. And we wonder why we are sick all the time.

Default The CDC never said "Get the flu shot or you will DIE!!!!

No where in your posted article, or elsewhere, does it state your OP.
Why do you continually make up "OMG" OPs?

They're so easy to debunk.

Can you not read? Read the quotes I highlighted in the first post. They are meant to induce fear. Simply read them if that's not too much trouble.

BTW, I said the one time I got the flu shot, I got the flu TWO MONTHS LATER!!! I never said the shot gave me the flu. Some people either skim over or can't comprehend what they just read.

preliminary research suggests the seasonal flu shot may put you at higher risk to catch the H1N1 swine flu. A study was done that found people who got the flu vaccine were up to 274% more klikely to catch the swine flu, than those that skipped the shot. IT's all about money now, the more shots they sell, the more money is made. Ask anyone and they'll tell you of someone they know who gets all the shots and seems to always get the flu. I've never had a flu shot, never will, and beleive my immune system is better for it.

You are close, but this is actually what happens when BIG Pharma corrupts the CDC (govt) with corporatist lobbying.
