Is the Flu Vaccine Safe This Year?
As I made a huge dent in my bed that one year when the swine flu attacked my system, I read everything about the H1N1 vaccine, along with the regular flu vaccine. Eventually, these two intermingled and now we're getting it all. I saw a video where this military girl explained a "conspiracy theory" about the vaccines and how it'll eventually control our minds and those who didn't get the shot would be thrown into a "camp". A bit extreme, so I moved on... It was then I saw a heart wrenching video of a girl who got paralyzed over the regular flu shot. You can watch her video below.

I have to admit, I don't know what I would do if I had young children. I can definitely understand many parents getting the vaccine just to keep their children safe - but are there children really safe? I would never argue with a parent over this --ever. So, I went to Facebook and asked, "On the fence about the flu shot this year. Anyone against taking it? And why?" I really thought there would be an enormous amount of people begging me to take it, but oddly enough, I found more people warning me against it. It kind of reinstated by passion for not taking the vaccine. Advocates for the vaccine provided me links to the CDC, while those who were against it provided links to other resourceful websites alerting the public about the dangers and misguided info that doctors have given us. There are people who work in hospitals that have to take it, or they can legally get fired for rejecting it. I know more than a handful of nurses who are fighting for their right to not take the vaccine. What does that tell you? You can read the thread here.
