Med question on Flu Shots

Posted by Phillipa on October 18, 2006, at 11:43:15

Does everyone here get a flu shot? They are giving them out free at various locations. But with the past history of gulliane barre(sp) I don't know whether to get one. Frankly I'm scared. I got one last year but my mental health was much, much better. What is the flu outlook this year? Thanks, Love Phillipa

My mother-in-law suffered semi-paralysis for 5 days after a flu shot, however she was not in good health to begin with, and in a nursing home. However she did recover from that almost completely. This was about 10 yrs ago.

I have avoided the shots since. Last fall I had access to a free flu shot at our workplace clinic, and decided to do it, because our workplace was touting it as the "thing to do". I felt definitely "flu-ish" for a week or so afterwards, and decided this year I'm NOT going to get the flu shot.

Thank-you I just don't trust the fact that they say it's dead. If it's dead why side effects? I don't get it. None for me either. Love Phillipa
