    Yesterday, there was a "stimulating" discussion after the question was posed "Will you get a flu shot?"

    I thought I would take this opportunity to summarize the CDC Recommendations as to whom should receive each type of vaccination: Seasonal Flu Vaccine and Novel H1N1 Vaccine.

    These are recommendations. No one is forced to get a flu shot. No one is required to get a flu shot. None of the members of the Federal Death Panel played a role in determining these recommendations.

    Here they are:

    Links...all this information is found on CDC.gov

    (And finally...this thread is indended to be a PSA. I encourage discussion and questions regarding the recommendations, but flames about the evil intentions of the medical field are not appreciated)

    When it started on Thursday, did it come on very suddenly (like over a period of an hour) and did it feel like a train hit you?


    If not, I'm guessing that you have a cold.

    I haven't received a vaccination in years but I don't sick very often either. I played outside a lot when I was young, had the usual childhood diseases. Even had chicken pox twice! Second time when I was 30.

    These vaccinations were just offered where I work yesterday but I turned em down.

    Thanks for the info.

    The last time I had the flu was about 15 years ago. I left for work feeling just fine and dandy. Halfway there I had to pull over and call for my daughter to come pick me up. I don't remember much of the next week or so. Brutal.
