Has anyone heard anything about having to get a flu shot to be able to keep your insurance?


The flu shot is never correctly done it is claimed for they cannot possibly know what strain of flu will be coming but I heard today they are going to force people to take this or not cover them. I never get the flu shot & I never get the flu (well over 10 years) & it would not seem right to me to be forced into getting one. Have you heard this and whether or not, what do you think? Would this bother you and would you fight against such a ruling?

    I know! Me too I have never had one but they made my mom sick every year when she got one and she had bronchitis so bad she would be sick for weeks but they made her anyway! Always made me so mad but she did whatever her doctors thought best!!

    Thank you for that information!

    I am sure hoping it is not true too. I guess I am just paranoid but I don't like the idea anyone can force whatever they want into my body without my permission. Another form of rape if you ask me!

    My mother got bronchitis almost every year right after flu shot along with the flu. that is why I do not get it. I have my own ways to prevent it & has worked over 10 years. The very best thing is to not eat at any restaurants that handle food.

    Sure hope you are right and it never comes to that.

    Thanks for your contribution. Makes a lot of sense. I basically watch germs....lol...or wash them.

    I read a medical person talking about it at FB and she sure sounded believable but maybe I misunderstood and it was just the medical personnel? I will add anything I find out. I am totally against it myself and already shot do some serious damage.
