Flu shots are a government and "big pharma" conspiracy to control the population while lining the pockets of political "fat cats"!!!





Did I get all that right?







OBTW, we got ours a couple of weeks ago . . .

Nope!
I do fine without some weird injection that will cause me some brain issue later in my life.

Same with me until recently. Never had the flu, never had the flu shot. Just now getting over the stuff. Have no clue who I got it from but it was a miserable week+. The strange thing about the real flu is the collateral damage. I got the crap. Tested positive and was put on the meds to help it go away quicker. Both my wife and my kid went on the meds as well (I got it before they had gotten flu shots) $100/head and three dr visits so far. Due to my immune system being down I got to what amounts to a skin infection and just finished five days of heavy antibiotics... another Dr visit. My daughter had a reaction to the flu med and ended up with widespread rash and then put on steroids... another Dr visit. My wife now has a fever and thinks she's probably has the flu. I haven't been sick for years and we are a health family group. It hit all of us because I somehow picked up the stuff. I get the... "I don't need the flu shot" attitude but I'll tell you... If you get the stuff be ready for a rough week or so and best wishes to the people around you.

Been getting them for 20 years, no side effects and no flu. Will keep doing it.

I don't listen to those "I heard it somewhere that it contains mercury and either your brain will rot or you testicles will fall off it you get one, so I ain't gonna get one from those crooked doctors pushing the shot".

My doctor gets one himself, if its good enough for him, its good enough for me.

Got one last year for the first time ever. Little dude, 8 months old, was having a heart surgery. He and I seemed to hit it off every time we were around each other, so his mom asked me to get the flu shot......................the next ten days I was the sickest I've been in years.

So I'm near enough 66 that it doesn't matter, been getting flu shots since my earliest days in the military in 71, wondering when these weird brain effects are supposed to start?

Oh....wait....

Nevermind

if you get your blood alcohol content up sufficiently high on a fairly frequent basis, thereís no way you can catch the flu.

Absolute idiots do not get flu shots. Guess what great grand dad you can't be near the baby. Solves the stupidity. Plus the other combo shot that I forget the name of.
