Other factors means it's a good time to fake illness and avoid school.
Beware of the nasal spray. It affects everyone differently. My kids got it a few years ago and one of them had no symptoms or side effects while the other had a fever, chills, and aches off and of for 3 days.
@jrenee This can happen with any form of vaccine. There is always the chance you get symptoms of the virus that the vaccine is supposed to help prevent.
Oh boy. We've certainly all seen it in this household, and it was a TOUGH one! About 2 weeks completely.
I would not wish it on anyone-Alka Seltzer night/day, chicken soup, water and sleep was all we could do! Feel better, everyone.
Maybe if we stop taking a vaccine for every little illness our bodies will be able to starting fighting on its own again. Never had this many illnesses every year prior to the flu shot.
The flu this year is NASTY. I had it a few weeks ago and, BOY!, did it knock me off my feet. The worst part was at night, when my chest was full of liquid. ARGH!
I almost went to the hospital.
Had the flu shot 2 years in a row and it worked both times. I got the flu both times. I know some will say it was a coincidence but it made a believer out of me.
Never had a vaccine. We are usually quite healthy. It is not the reason we got sick. The bug is the reason.
Not a nice one it is.
go tell the Caribs, the Indians that.
I wonder how it would have turned out if they had Immunization shots?
Myself....hasn't seen many around lately.
Here! Have a free blanket.
I know why.
I think the school is segmented...into those who give a * and those who don't.
I graduated a year ear;y and two years absent..how does that figure into public education.
