A growing number of people have been asking should I get a XYZ or XXX vaccine or not?

If you believe anything the IDSA has to say at this point, here are their recommendations.

These guidelines may also help avoid getting vaccines if you don’t want them.

And yes... if you have a great grandma named Earl, and you wear blue socks for 16 days straight, and you can eat pizza thru the opening in your ear, but only do it on the 6th Friday of the month, then the vaccines should be wonderful for you.

You should run out and get as many as you can so we (IDSA/CDC) can make LOTS of money off you and your future misery.

That's what we do!

Wow! That is inconceivably "thorough" in all the various populations of immuno-compromised conditions.

"Who's responsible for seeing that the patient receives all the vaccines they list?" (paraphrased) is at the top of each section and it states: the GP & the specialists.

Never - no, never - does it state, "it's the responsibility of the patient to study the issues from a variety expert sources, talk with doctor they trust to be truly informed on the matter (though very rare to find in any medical practice) . . . and make this decision for themselves."

They did forget one segment of the population, though: I am very surprised they did not have a section for those in the morgue and for the morgue attendants to have the responsibility in seeing their charges also received all the vaccines while under their care.

I heard an ad on the radio yesterday (from a chain drug store) that people should avoid the "rush" and get this year's "flue vaccine" and if they did, the chain would "give" the vaccine to needy people.

Uhhhhhh, do they know yet which strain is most probable and what is the success rate? (Crickets chirping in the background)

A popular store here with a pharmacy promises to donate $1 to "X, Y, Z" if you get a flu shot now. Hey, just donate the buck in my name and cut to the chase!

WALGREENS!!! YULK ON THEM!

Here is the info TX is talking about...

"Get a Shot. Give a Shot.®

When you get a flu, whooping cough, shingles, pneumonia or any other immunization at Walgreens, you could help save a life. Together with the United Nations Foundation's [email protected] campaign, we're helping to provide lifesaving vaccines to children in need.*"

ON TV it sounds like they are giving a vaccine to a child if you get one- a 2 for 1 deal. But NO! Read the fine print at the website....

*For every immunization administered, Walgreens will make a donation, $0.18 from 9/1/15 - 8/31/16; and $0.22 from 9/1/16  8/31/17, to the United Nations Foundation, up to a maximum donation of $2,000,000 per term.

ALSO- keep in mind the patent people behind the vaccines- often IDSA and CDC- make the OFFICIAL recommendations for people to get vaccines. Any left overs that don't sell here can be "administered" to innocent children in foreign impoverished countries, with those who stand to profit still profiting.

Keebler- that was funny! Thanks for the laugh! Amazed they aren't vaccinating plants! Maybe they are next?

And Keebler, thanks for putting the link for the other site there. I wanted to and knew it should be added, but I was completely exhausted and just had nothing left in me to do more at the time.

Brussels- you are very welcome. May I assume you are using it for reasons NOT to be vaccinated?
