This is the first time in years that we have gone without flu shots. It is probably not the most opportune time since I am substitute teaching so much.
I seriously had no idea they would call this often but I'm taking the jobs since my health screening work is off for the month of December.
Which brings me back to the flu shot. I have seen a lot of what people think amounts to media propaganda pushing flu shots. The most recent article was about a few children who died of the flu a few years ago.
The more I read about the possible side effects of the flu shot preservatives, the more it makes me question the safety.
Coincidentally, or not, last Saturday I could barely get out of bed. I took my temperature and it was 101.6 degrees F. Now, I rarely ever get a fever. I am one of those whose temp normally runs below 98 - so this was unusual. Could it have been a mini-flu? Guess I'll never know, but I was back to normal by Monday.
But it got me to thinking about getting a flu shot. Or not.
What are your thoughts?
