NO WAY JOSE

RW has constructed a "checklist" in the event that a flu pandemic hits our nation/building that includes hoarding canned goods and vitamins in case you are too sick to go to the grocery store. really? come onnnn.

RW is seriously recommending that all employees get a flu shot as well as the H1N1 vaccination because of all the oldies around.

HELLLLLZ NO!

CP has gotten me up-to-date on the dangers of vaccinations. and i really don't want to be pumping foreign chemicals into the crook of my arm. PLUS I HATE NEEDLES.

today my boss said, "L, are you going to get the flu shot(s)?" i said, "ehhhhh i don't know..." she stares at me...."i just don't want all those chemicals in my body." she narrows her eyes at me. "what do you think? are you kind of pushing us all to get one?" she said, "well, i think it's a good idea for all of us since we work in a long-term care facility with the elderly." OMG DON'T PULL THE "ELDERLY" CARD ON ME WOMAN. she said, "think about it, they're here all week."

i have a cold. so i googled, "getting a flu shot when sick"

and found:

Who Should NOT Get a Flu Shot:

Anyone with:

* An allergy to eggs
* Fever and/or cold

WELL, THAT'S IT. I HAVE AN EGG ALLERGY THAT CAUSES SEVERE DIARRHEA AND JUST PLEASE, LOOK AT THE PICTURE BELOW AND YOU TELL ME IF I HAVE A COLD.

  1. pretty sure i had the ol' swine this past week. its bad, but not that bad. i just don't understand all the panic. i don't consider the flu vaccine worthy. especially if you have to get one every year.

  5. FYI: we had a guest speaker who is an expert on public health regulations in my law, science and technology class today. He said that the swine flu vaccine was not necessary unless you're a young child or elderly, or have a compromised immune system. People our age, in generally good health, do not need to get them. And, according to him, if you've been exposed to a similar virus in the past (i.e. the flu) you probably have some low level immunity to it.
