That can easily be reversed. Find a good naturopathic physician and you will never want or need a flu shot again.

I take a homeopathic 'vaccination.' I never get the flu (knock on wood).
mercury

I've had some REALLY bad cases of influenza (namely my senior year of HS, missed so much school I almost couldn't pass the semester and was sick of over a month) and have never had a flu shot. My doctor has said he doesn't like to encourage shots or taking antibiotics unless it's really necessary b/c like sharky said, you just ruin your natural immunity which is the best. I hear people with the shot can still get it anyway. I'd rather have and elderly person have my shot so their flu doesn't turn into something more life threatening.

that's what GW suggested and later got ridiculed by Kerry.
Part of the reason that we do not have enough flu vacinations is because of Kerry's running mate.

What sort of things do you believe should be under government control, or provided by the government instead of using private entities? All vaccinations? All healthcare?

I haven't gotten a flu shot in years. I tend to get the flu or at least a bad respiratory disease after I get it, so I'd rather not do it.

Hey diamond...

Surely, during the course of this exhaustive investigation of yours, you came across the name of the case. Could you give us this information?

I'll go out on a limb here, and say you can't, because almost certainly this case flat-out doesn't exist. You just reprinted some lame-ass email without worrying the slightest bit about whether it was, like, true and stuff.

You're embarrassing yourself with this, diamond. Don't be such a chump.

BAW's right, by the way. Chiron is an American company.

Maybe that's why it wasn't on 60 minutes, unless 60 minutes is a CBS program of course.

I guess CBS and NY Times would do well to check their stories before publishing them.

Oh, don't worry. This is no worse than some of the articles posted from "alternate" information sources the pepper this forum.

Russian Expert Says Flu Epidemic May Kill Over One Billion This Year


MosNews

The world is on the brink of a major flu epidemic — one that could claim more than a billion lives, the head of the Russian Virology Institute, Academician Dmitry Lvov said at a press conference organized by the RIA-Novosti news agency on Thursday.

“Up to one billion people could die around the whole world in six months,” Lvov said. The expert did not give a timeframe for the epidemic, but said that it is highly probable that it will start this year. “We are half a step away from a worldwide pandemic catastrophe,” the academic said.

The Russian expert said that U.S. researchers possessed data suggesting that if a pandemic hits, up to 700,000 people will fall ill in the United States. He said that the population of the United States can be roughly compared to that of Russia and thus the number of cases will be approximately the same.

The academician said the pandemic was most likely to be caused by the so-called bird flu stem. “The death rate among those who contract this type of flu reaches 70 percent,” Lvov said.

The expert called for the Russian authorities to prepare for the epidemic. The country will need a reserve of at least 300,000 hospital beds if an epidemic breaks out, he said.

I suppose this is one way to get Social Security payouts down.
