I am 51, have never had the Flu vaccine, have never had the flu. My husband, 55, has a one hour commute, works in an office setting, has never had the Flu vaccine, has never had the flu. My daughter, 26, lived in dormitory setting for one bachelors degree, did a second bachelors, in Nursing, attending numerous Clinicals, currently doing a Masters in Nursing, attending Clinicals again. Has never had the Flu vaccine, has never had the flu. My son, 21, is in Senior year of college, living in dorms, has never had the Flu vaccine, has never had the flu. In fact, he has not been on an antibiotic since age 1 1/2, and has not missed a day of school or work since 6th grade. My family history included 13 cases of Muscular Dystrophy, numerous (deadly) cancers, severe Osteoporosis (to the point of collapsed vertebea and Dowagers humps), widespread thyroid disease and endocrine problems, a few cases of Diabetes. We do NOT come from health stock. We do not live in isolation or avoid people or social situations. In fact, we don't make an effort to avoid sick people. The only thing we do do, is eat REALLY well and take supplements. I don't know what else to attribute it to. I believe the HYPE surrounding vaccines is just that, HYPE.
