I hear a lot about people who avoid this vaccine. Why? I have an 8 year old step child and her mother says she's not allowed to take the flu shot because she has asthma. I have breathing problems also...though I never went to the doc about it. I buy the Primetene Mist from stores. It works well for me. Sometimes I have trouble breathing at night. Im not over weight, 5'3" 128 pounds. If I take this shot will something happen to me? My mother in law was diagnosed with diabetes right after her mandatory flu shot!!
I don't think I ever had this shot.
are they saying that those who had a flu shot for the 2008-09 came down with the swine flu this spring and summer? well the two have nothing to do with each other-two different flu strains? I guess I will reread it but I didn't see alot of detail about the actual study. To me none of us had had this virus before so we were all susceptible this year. To say we are also susceptible if we have EVER had a flu shot doesn't tell me a lot because we were all susceptible this year-past flu shots or not.
from article: The biological link between seasonal flu shots and H1N1 remains a mystery, but the authors suggested that repeated flu shots do not allow a person to muster a robust immune response when exposed to a new influenza virus
