The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie— deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. – John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917–1963)

Vaccines are BIG business. Have you had your flu shot yet?
Yes, because clinical trials show it reduces you chance of getting the flu and reduced your chances of giving the flu to another person who might be harmed or killed by it.
Being a responsible person, my choice was obvious.
I will let JFK reply on my behalf . .

So true, so true and so appropriate with regard to the various myths about vaccines, their effectiveness and their safety.
However, should you decide to actually think about it for yourself, consider the simple question presented here . . .

Your link has absolutely nothing to do with the efficacy of the flu vaccine. If you wish to claim it is ineffective, shouldn't you be providing proof of that instead of repeating irrelevant quotations and giving scare stories about other vaccines?
I go by the clinical trials. Vaccines do reduce rates of infection. I am health enough to tolerate flu, but some people I interact with are elderly or chronically ill--so I need to think of them also.

Here's my dilemma. My son's school is offering the swine flu vaccine in mist form for free. I have to sign a permission form before they will give it to him and I'm iffy on whether or not to let him have it. He's 5, by the way. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks ahead of time.

I'm a nurse working for a major healthcare company. However, I am only into natural health stuff. I give injections and medications to patients that I would never want to take myself. Now...my job is making the Flu vaccine mandatory. I already refused the shot and they are making me wear a monkey...

I did a quick poll on a Swine Fly vaccine hub, and almost 70% of the people who responded are not getting a shot - OK so it's only out of 19 people so far - but is that representative of the Hub community? I for one won't be - but we're still talking to the doctor's regarding my pregnant daughter!

Any ideas on whether it's best to get the flu vaccine or not? Did you get one this year?
