2. WHAT?? Making fun of stupid anti-vaxers is stoopid? That's mean.

When he seldom writes, this is what he means.

1. You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine. Ever. No matter what anyoneís told you. You CAN get an immune response such as low grade fever, mild inflammation, or local redness and swelling. This is GOOD. It means your body is fighting the inactivated virus itís been exposed to and it will build immune cells specific to fighting that virus if it ever sees it again..... hence the entire premise behind getting vaccinated. It takes your body about two weeks to build fighter cells and for the vaccine to reach its maximum protectiveness. If you get sick within a week or two of receiving the vaccine, then you were exposed to influenza and hadnít yet received protection from your vaccine. Crappy timing.
Period.

2. The vaccine does NOT cause strokes, auto-immune diseases, or severe allergic reactions. There is a very small percentage of people whoís bodies do not react normally and therefore those people should not receive the vaccine. Let me put it this way; I swell up like Violet in the Willy Wonka factory if I eat avocado. I think we can all agree that avocados arenít dangerous, my body is the problem, not the food. Likewise, the vaccine is safe but like all things (even avocados) it can be dangerous for certain people. I cannot stress enough how rare this is, even though literally every online guru with a degree in alternative wellness claims to know someone itís happened to.

3. If youíre healthy, good for you. No, seriously, good for you. You have the luxury of deciding whether or not you want to get poked. If you get the flu, youíll miss a couple days of school, maybe a week off of work and then youíll return to your life. Thatís not the case for many people in our community.

When healthy people vaccinate, we protect the newborns and the grandparents and the chemo patients and the ones who truly cannot receive the vaccine. Itís called herd immunity, and itís the cornerstone of a healthy society.

4. You did not get the ďstomach fluĒ from the influenza vaccine. The stomach virus commonly called the ďstomach fluĒ is not a flu at all. Stomach viruses are commonly caused by novovirus or norovirus , not influenza. If you have symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea with a fever right after receiving the flu vaccine you are the unfortunate recipient of a sad coincidence. This sad coincidence is not uncommon since peak seasons of these virusí activity overlap. I know you donít want that to be true, but, science. In that same vein, if you get ďthe stomach fluĒ on a year youíve received the influenza vaccine, your vaccine did not fail. The vaccine you received does not protect against stomach virus. Stay tuned though, vaccines for these viruses are all but guaranteed to be common in the coming years!

5. The drug companies and the CDC and all doctors and all nurses and everyone ever who advocated for vaccination are all paid by and/or brainwashed by big pharma to sell these vaccines by convincing others. Yeah... just no. Iíve never received a check or any other compensation from anyone to advocate for vaccinations of any kind. I donít know a single person in the medical field (and I know a lot) who has ever received a bribe. Iím just about the most cynical, skeptical human out there and I require a lot of research & data to formulate my opinions, again, most of my colleagues are no different.

If I really wanted to look out for number 1 (me) wouldnít I try to drum up business at my ER by convincing others NOT to get the flu shots? Wouldnít I WANT people to become sick so that I had job security?? $$ think about it people. This rationale is just ass backwards. I advocate for vaccines because Iíve held a newborn with fever while the doctor does a lumbar puncture. Because Iíve put a grandfather on a ventilator who couldnít breathe and because Iíve put the final drape over a mother of 3ís face after she beat breast cancer but died of the flu. I did all of this knowing full well that it was preventable. We had the ability to save those people as a society and we failed because of the precious oils purveyor Lindsey-types in this world who prey on peopleís poor information and fear.
Vaccinate!

3. Saying "Don't vaccinate your baby" is Stupid...

May as well advocate for throwing them out in the Australian Outback to "entertain" the dingoes.

If his video (which I can't watch currently) is saying the opposite, fine, but the title remains stupid)

6. It is a great song/parody of what it would take to believe vaxers and disbelief experts (lists r

really long list of experts) - and exudes the ridiculous confidence of those who adopt the stance - all while strongly (implied) advocating - get your kid vaccinated! If you a get a chance to watch it, I think you would appreciate it.

If the title got someone to watch how was either on the fence or anti-vax - they would turn it off quickly - cuz... gotsta protect oneself from cognitive dissonance.

It just didn't seem fair to make a judgment based solely on the title. JMO

But, that is your manner, apparently (or lack thereof)

20. A whole lot of people simply comment before they read/view posts here.

It is embarrassing at times.

By the way, I'm one of those people who can't get a flu vaccination. So I really appreciate it when people around me get it.

12. I would think

that you wouldn't want to comment on a post in the Video & Multimedia Forum if you can't, you know, watch the video.

I agree that it's stupid not to vaccinate, but the video is calling out the stupidity and is brilliantly done. I would watch when/if you can. Then you'll understand the title.

13. I would think you wouldn't go out of your way to insult someone for doing nothing other than comment

on a video title.

Really? Is this your way of interacting? Rudeness is not a virtue.

Sorry you took it that way. You are right that rudeness is not a virtue. Yet you are being rude. Have a nice day.
