I have never gotten a flu shot and never will.
Focus on proper function of the immune system instead (kicks soapbox back into the corner...).
Now I know why he is smart enough to be a moderator.
If you are unlucky enough to get the flu, run along to the doctor and he will give you an antibiotic that you don't need that further compromises your immune system for life and your gut flora will never be the same. Once you have made your system immune to the benefits of every anti infective thanks to over prescribing over 50 years, you can get pneumonia and end up in the hospital. There they can't get anything to touch the infection and probably even give you a super infection such as methacillin resistant staph that makes you sicker or kills you. When in the pine box all laid out your relatives kiss you and get the infection to pass on.
Aint it grand. Monkeys playing with mainframes.
Oh God W&C now I am on my soapbox, it's early and I am bored. I could tell you the best medication to take but nobody would listen anyway and this is a coal board.
Roll up, roll up, flu shots for free ... get them right here. Be safe for life and afterwards I will give you a free lollipop. hahahahahhahaha etc.
