Flu season is here, and this year’s strain is more virulent than most, causing several deaths in the North Bay. Health officials are recommending everyone get vaccinated, but not all readers want the flu shot.
Here were some of the comments:
——
“A friend of mine got the flu shot and my husband got the flu shot. Guess what they both got? The worst flu with a fever. I think I’ll skip it again.”

“If no one got the flu shot, the country would be in a huge flu epidemic or pandemic. So thank you to those of you responsible enough to keep this at bay.”

“If you are a healthy person and have a good immune system, you should be able to handle a bad case of the flu.”

“I will never take a flu shot. The flu shots contain formaldehyde and thimersol — a compound containing mercury. Sadly, our medical profession is in the pockets of the big pharmaceutical companies, who only care about profit.”

“I get one every year.”
