    there is a huge vaccine shortage due to a company losing an entire supply. I Highly recommend reading for recommendations on whether you should/should not get the shot...by not getting you could save someones life that needs it.

    I started reading it, but it's saturday, so I'm just on the computer to drink my coffee, then play with the kids and work on the house...


    THanks for the info, though, I will read it later.

    never had a flu shot , prolly not gonna get one either. on a second note ; I heard that without the vaccine from britain, we will onlybe short about 20% less than what we need , evidently the plant that got shut down , it's prices were so high that the US goverment only bought 20%of it's supply from them, so thats all we are really short the report said the US media was blowing it way out of prportion, I don't know whether it is true or not but it sounds like something our media would do. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif nothing like scaring the hell out of the general public to sell a story and make themselves sound NEEDED! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Yep they canceled our flu shots at work, My wife will get one cause she has asthma. If I get the flu I'll just do like the devil docs say and take some Motrin and call you in the morning.

    FYI we had a doc tell us once he guaged the size of the Motrin on the thickness and tabs on our medical records /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    They even cancelled them at the hospitals for helath care workers, even though they are high risk.

    This is serious. It's gonna be a hell of a flu season. A lot more old people and other high risk people are going to die. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
