    I just replied to another post on flu jags.

    I got one two years ago and I was doing pretty good and it laid me out and caused a 6 month relapse.

    I can believe the flu jag could cause cfs/fibro.

    my mum never had any of us kids vaccinated and still wont.
    at 18 i went for my baby shots and on dose number two i was really really ill, pale shaking hot and cold the sweats.
    i was so ill my useless waste of space boyf at the time ran from the house!
    maybe he thought i would die and he didnt want the blame?
    i hear now he is married,poor girl.

    anyway after that no more jabs for me. i got that sydney flu though which developed in to plurusy.:(

    I've been really lucky.

    I've taken the flu shot every year for years and have only gotten the "real flu" only once. And ... once was enough!!

    I have never had any problems with the flu vaccine. Last year was the first year in quite a while that I didn't get one.

    I even had one years ago when I was life/death sick. I wasn't strong enough to chance getting the flu. Had no problems with vaccine then either.

    I haven't decided if I'll get one this year ... not against them, just being lazy.

    Take care,
