I totally agree with you that people with immune system issues are NOT to take the flu shots. I think that's been stressed here for a lot of years. Some of us have immune systems set on 'high', and some of us set on 'low'. It just stands to reason the same dosage taken by 'normals' would not work for us. Besides, the flu vaccines only carry protection for certain viruses, and generally are not the ones that actually hit the population the way they predict...lol. The stomach 'flu' is not a flu, and is not covered with the flu shot. Another misconception for many people. Influenza is generally an upper respiratory infection that leads to bronchitis or pneumonia, IMHO. As for our docs informing us of CFS/FM people against the shots, how can they?? Most of them don't even understand what we have. Hope we all stay healthy this winter, although these bugs seem to be lasting all year long.
