Recently, I have been asked by a lot of chiropractic patients as to whether they should or should not get the Flu Vaccine. This is a personal choice I cannot answer for each individual. When the consumer becomes informed of pros/cons to any choice they need to make, I believe the consumer is smart enough to make the best choice for themselves and loved ones.
Before you and your family rush from fear to get the Flu shot, DO YOUR HOMEWORK and consider these facts:
In a recent article from the Associated Press reported on Yahoo stated there has been concern of how the government will be tracking the H1N1 (swine) flu shot’s side effects. The last mass vaccination against a different swine flu in 1976 showed reports of a paralyzing condition, Guillain-Barre syndrome.
As a side note, it is interesting that 70% of doctors and nurses, and 62% of other health care workers do NOT get the yearly flu shot. Ask your doctor if they and their family get a flu shot.
Ultimately, whether or not to get the flu shot is a personal choice. Know your rights and become informed before you give your consent. For references and more information, go to:
