Flu shots are to be avoided at all costs. I've never had one and I haven't had the flu since I was a child.

I get a flu shot every year. I am a type 1 diabetic, and getting the flu is an automatic hospital inpatient stay. Too expensive! What happens, though, when somebody borrows a car and drives through?

How can anyone who gets a drive thru flu shot not admit they are kind of lazy? If you're unable to walk into the hospital to get a shot, you should already probably be in the hospital.

A recent meta analysis showed that it takes 100 flu vaccinations to prevent just ONE flu illness. I call that a colossal failure. Want to prevent the flu? Wash your hands regularly and take vitamin D3 supplements. It's an all natural approach that really works. Avoid the vaccine - it's loaded with toxic chemicals no body needs.

Vaccines are not toxic. Andrew Wakefield spread false and misleading information about the MMR vaccine back in the late 90's. All his research was discredited. Some people still choose to believe all vaccines are bad because of him. They are wrong. Vaccines are perfectly safe. Flu shots are not very effective, however can increase the chances of you NOT getting the flu during the season.

I got my flu shot this morning. They had me wait 10 minutes after the shot to make sure that I didn't have a bad reaction to it. Bad reactions are rare, but the DO happen. And when they do, it would be better if you weren't driving a car, like you would be if you'd gotten your shot at a drive through clinic.

This line should have people truly thinking about what in the world is in that vaccine - "Of course, nurses will still ask some questions about medical history, for safety reasons, and a doctor will be on hand just in case." If they cared about your health, they'd tell you what is in the shot and they would sign a contract, stating they'd be responsible for an adverse affects. Diseases happen when your immunity is compromised - an injection of foreign substances would do the trick.
