    RG and Gloria, the two of you simply don't get it. If you don't understand basic chemistry and at least try to understand the pathophysiology behind the virus I have no interest in debating with a couple of people who will believe any bunch of paranoid nonsense that they can google. I, as well, have much better things to do.

    I actually didn't google that article. It was posted on FB by my niece who is a nurse complaining that they are forced to get a flu shot or wear a mask. She was stating that it ridiculous that they have to get a flu shot when they are not even proven to be effective. And she is not against vaccines just the flu shot.

    You might be right, it might be about money. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent on the people who refuse to get vaccinated and then get Influenza and need medical care for three or four weeks? How many millions of dollars are lost in productivity when people can't work for weeks at a time? How many people in college aren't able to finish a semester but still have to pay student loans for the classes they were enrolled in?

    The only studies that have supposedly shown the flu shot is not effective are in the senior population, which is also the one hardest hit by Influenza. So supposedly the flu shot doesn't prevent any more deaths than a placebo, but the fact is that it *is* proven to reduce the effect of Influenza in those who do get it, so that might explain part of that. And in the years where the flu shot has missed the mark and not caught that year's strain here in the U.S., the effect has absolutely been notable. More people get sick, and they get sicker, than in years where the flu shot is more effective.

    THAT IS A LIE. The ONLY flu vaccines that contain mercury are the ones in multi-use vials. Nasal sprays and single-dose syringes do not, and those are what most people lining up at flu shot clinics are getting because no one is going to take the time to fill up a bunch of single syringes from one bottle. And while I'd love to get into all the other lies in that article, I'm not going to because I have other things to do today.

    lol in your comment you state it is is true.. ...you say it is a lie and then say well it actually is true in some cases.
