You do realize that the biggest reason for why many diseases are now not spread rampantly are vaccines? That the only reason that smallpox is eradicated is because everyone was vaccinated, and not just some people who "didn't know any better"?

I have not gotten the flu shot myself because I doubt its effectiveness and I'm a young, healthy individual. That said, my grandmother died of the flu this past April, so let's not be fooled into thinking that it may not have some use for certain segments of the population.

so we agree.

true, some vaccines are good and some arent. i dont care what anyone else does, im not saying you should or shouldnt get them, but i'll stick to my superhuman immune system

so instead of focusing on me, tell me what you think of the article?

I don't think much of the article. It sounds like the typical fear mongering of the anti-vaccine lobby which has been given far too much attention in the US.

I've been skeptical of some vaccines after reading about links to Gulf War syndrome years ago.

so you decided when you were 14 that you knew more than the collective medical community?

no, my decision was fairly recent, considering that past experience and a little research.

i just happened to not have any shots since i was around 14 or so

but i guess i should let the medical community make my decisions for me, even though my family and i have had some pretty bad experiences with them in the past.

Promise not to be embarrassed if I agree 100% with you?

I've never had a flu shot, despite them being pushed on us (Canadians) for well over a decade now. I'm of the "young, healthy people don't need it" mindset. I sometimes wonder if healthy people vaccinating themselves against something as simple as the seasonal flu messes with one's immune system in any way. However, I'm strongly considering getting one this year, in case H1N1 mutates into something more serious than we've seen so far.

Well if that happens, the existing flu shot sure won't help you any...

They're developing one aren't they? Or will that only be for the strain that's out now?

They can't develop a vaccine for an unknown strain. So if it mutates in the fall, the flu shot is worthless.

This is the main reason that I have never gotten the shot. It protects against the strains of the major world flu outbreaks, as well as strains that are guesses. Basically, they look at the most dominant strains present in the preceding flu season, and then mathematical models compute probable mutations, and those are included in the vaccine as well. But this is at best a guessing game. So far, we haven't outsmarted a mutating virus...
