No you can't catch the flu from a shot but should not take it if you are allergic to eggs.I got mine at work over a month ago.There is not a live virus in it.

Yes, but it is not a live virus. It boosts your immune system. I got my shot at Walgreens today after work. It doesn't hurt, but I have to admit it makes me feel very tired for a couple of days. Its worth it because I had the flu once and it was awful, I was sick for over week and could barely get out of bed.

Vaccines DO NOT boost your immune system, they suppress it for long periods. Do some actual research.

Flu shots scare me. I'm worried about getting that Guillan Barr Syndrome that causes paralysis. I don't think it's a very common disease, but it is apparently commoner in people who have had the flu shot than in those who haven't.

I'll take my chances with the flu any day rather than risk something like that.

Its caused by vaccines only. My neighbour spent 80 days in the hospital with it after a flu shot.

Before you vaccinate for the flu, you should understand what is in the vaccine. The flu shot contains a mixture of egg proteins including bird contaminant viruses. It also contains polysorbate 80 (associated with infertility in animals), formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), Triton X100 (detergent), sucrose (sugar), and thimerisol (50% mercury by weight). The multi-dose flu vaccines still contain mercury which is the third most toxic item known to mankind. You should not ingest or inject any mercury containing products. Looking at this cornucopia of toxic ingredients should make it clear that it is best to avoid injecting the flu vaccine in any living being.

I will get a shot very soon. It is bedtime for Tippy and her fish and myself, and to all, a good night.

Time to get your head examined if you are considering this dangerous, and useless shot.

Right, doctors everywhere are just doing the wrong thing, just because they don't know any better.

Basically thats right. Doctors don't make vaccines, or pharma, and rely on makers for all information on product. Pharma companies market products though fear mongering and fraud. Do a search of ANY Pharma company or any product with the word LAWSUIT. You will see that injury and fraud are the 2 main reasons they are perpetually involved in litigation, and they are found AT FAULT over and over. That is factual, not my opinion.
