The vaccine protects you against 4 strains and if you only have 1 of them, why not protect yourself from the other 3? Definitely push for the vaccine when you see your doctor. It is your body and your health!
It's not just the doctors, it's insurance companies too.....while many do pay there's a number that won't including mine.
I'm not going to worry at this stage of the game unless I could get it off a toilet seat!
Then I also wonder about new drugs...how safe are they really?? Who knows what could happen say 10 or 20 years down the road?
I'm also old enough to remember thalidomide! What an awful consequence.
I'd rather be safe than sorry...but what is
I'm done being a guinea pig.
I do NOT trust drug companies...they are in business to make profit....only when some awful undesirable effect becomes known
they might do something about it.....maybe.
