There are "laboratory confirmed" cases in Berkshire County.

You must get a flu shot to be safe.

The flu is expected to be unusually hard-hitting this year.

Obamacare will require this shot in the future. Don't get your flu shots and you won't get treated.
Only bad thing is they want to put a hefty tax on this shot.

This concerns me. But its a good thing if they make it mandatory.

Each year when they "build" the components of the flu shot they have to guess which strains to vaccinate against. It's not possible to protect people against all strains with the yearly flu shot.

The reason the flu is running rampant this year is because the strain was not included in the shot. There is a small, limited protection in getting the shot but some of the people who have died from this strain received the shot.

Just a heads up to the would-be super heroes who think they can run around sick people without care just because they've had the shot.

Limbaugh said on his show today that Bush was the cause of the massive flu outbreak today. He could have taken care of it during his term but let it get out of control

Dio would rather let his children get sick and believe in a silly conspiracy than exercise some common sense.

He's like those whackos who refuse to vaccinate their children because of completely unsubstantiated nonsense.

What has happened is that your children are at greater risk for getting sick because you are an idiot.

I convinced of it.

Praxis33 should beat you to a pulp at OTB.

Maybe knock some sense into you, but you'd never show.

Dio is batshit crazy and is incapable of defending himself, either physically or intellectually. That he may have fathered children is proof enough of the need for sterilization.

You're just another Topix idiot. Obsessed with guns, violence, and hatred. Your parents are undoubtedly ashamed of you.

Volunteers please raise your hands: Who's willing to drive Praxis33 in the wheelchair van over to OTB so he can beat Dio to a pulp?
To what, beat Dio to a pulp? Only would take one hand even in a wheelchair.
