I'm very sorry to hear about these deaths.
That said, my doctor ( very popular ) told me not to get a flu shot.
I would like to know how many of California's flu victims got shots.
Crockett I have also been warned about flu shots by friends who work in the medical field. So I've never got one, never will.
That's a good question Crockett. I would like the know the answer too.
My condolences to the families of the victims.
I have taken flu shots every year for the past 53 years. I have never had the flu nor even a serious cold. If your doctor is telling you Not to get a flu shot, you need to find a new doctor. Life is tough, it is even tougher when you aren't smart.
a flu shot is only effective for that STRAIN of flu.
Crockett Your doctor is actively trying to exterminate you.
Leaperman621 do you think people know What STRAIN they are getting? this is crazy our locals are dying and you put up ignorance like this? 202 dead deceased in California and you are promoting to NOT get a Flu shot? How ridiculous of a statement. Medically Ignorant advice statements. Do you think these 200 would have liked to have lived long enough to receive a flu shot? Go to another doctor if they recommend against flu shots.
