this is why I don't take any medication unless it's 100% necessary. It's better for you to get sick and come out stronger anyway. I'll take my remote chances of death with the swine flu, than turn into what she did.

Truly awful what happened. I like how they point out the obvious - 'might discourage people from getting flu shots'.

Really?

A freak, one-in-a-million adverse reaction means nobody should get a flu vaccine? There are far better reasons to avoid getting a flu vaccine, mainly that they are of limited effectiveness and prevent a disease that is not usually that serious. (JohnnyV has the right reasoning, but it ONLY applies when the malady isn't generally serious, IMHO. I'd have to do research, but I actually suspect that the chance of dying from the flu is BETTER than the chance of getting this kind of reaction, statistically speaking, but not for someone that is not medically fragile to begin with, like the very young or very old.)

By this reasoning, one should never take ANY kind of medications, because SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE has had an adverse experience with most anything. Heck, that reasoning would cause you to give up many, many foods, too.

Saw that on Facebook. Initially, I thought it was some kind of hoax.

I won't be getting any flu shots now or ever. My immune system is tip-top with all the Vitamins I consume. Besides, if my body isn't strong enough to fight off infection and illnesses, I shouldn't be alive.

If people don't want to get the shot then fair enough, it's their choice, but they have no right to whine if they contract full blown swine flu as a result

As opposed to half blown swine flu?

Flu shots make sense for the really young or the really old. The in-between... well, the human body is meant to get sick once in a while.
