Flu Vaccines. A Hassle?

In my opinion its annoying that facilities make us get flu vaccines.

The vaccine is only viable for one season, it doesn't even protect you for a long time like the other vaccines.

Its all of them want you to get the flu vaccine or you will be suspended from work or if you're a student, you will not be allowed to do rotations.

Is it a conspiracy? What are they putting in our bodies every year?! :o

I don't know,

I just cant get over that news I watched a while where a woman who was healthy but then, got a dystonia from a flu shot.

I know, I sound paranoid... Lol

Working in the ICU I see plenty of patients who thought the same thing. Is a week on a vent possibly followed by death really less of a hassle?

Yep, me too. I transferred one to ICU. On a vent, died. H1N1. ID had not yet diagnosed her when I transferred her, so she was on no precautions when I had her. Thank god *I* had the flu shot that season. It had H1N1 in it.

I found influenza to be a hassle, the two times I got it...which interestingly coincided with the two years that I did not get vaccinated. :sarcastic:

This thread is a good read-- kind of puts the hassle of a vaccine in perspective. https://allnurses.com/pandemic-flu/toxic-flu-h1n1-950693.html

There's a whole sub forum here devoted to discussions like this.

Which video are you referring to? The only one I know of was a hoax.

You know what's annoying and a hassle? Being placed on a vent and ECMO and being airlifted to hospital 4 hours away. You know what's also a hassle? Having to plan a funeral for a loved one who died way too young from H1N1.

Ya know what's not really a hassle? Getting an annual flu shot!
