Yeah, where do you think the outbreak started. Wreaking our nations immune system, and allowing them to put god knows what inside people.

But, by all means, get your common multi-dose, mercury-laden flu shot with many times the federal safety limit of mercury

Used to be 110% pro-vax, now 120% anti. Learn the facts before you vaccinate!

This years flue shot is not of the same strain. It wouldn't have mattered it they had gotten it.

Come on kiddos just because you have money doesn't mean you don't have to wash your hands!!( i joke , I joke :) Many parents ,(not all)are forgetting to teach kids from any background, manners ... which includes ...washing your hands! And I mean this is so simple ..wash your hands.... dont spread disease, have good hygiene and eat healthy. I also don't believe in flu shots... no way the government is putting their liquid in me .

Watch out for those door knobs, all it takes is one sick kid to spread his vermin on just a couple of well used door knobs and this happens.

This is terrible reporting. The outbreak is due to a gastrointestinal illness, it is NOT the flu. So all you anti-vaccine folks can just relax.

It would be very unlikely for this many people to be sickened at the same time and so quickly by influenza. However, stomach viruses (there's no such thing as "stomach flu", by the way - actual influenza does not cause GI symptoms) can definitely cause this type of illness cluster.

Wrong! this is not gastrointestinal. This is the actual flu. Also, many of those infected did get the flu shot. I don't know where you got the idea that this was a GI illness but I can assure you that it is not.

Thank you for a good update.

I'll just say, pro-vaxers, "the most close-minded people of all are those who state they are very open-minded. To be open-minded, you have to follow the truth and evidence wherever it goes, not what you blindly believe to be so." -quote it, Greene Co Parent.

What is the Greenway Rising about? Is it Ike a parkway or highway? Or perhaps it is related to golf?

And now that the whole PSA/ prostate cancer fraud's been recognized, testosterone supplements will create a prostate cancer crisis out of thin air.
