"True story, no crap... Two years ago I went for my 50 year-old physical. The doc said I should get a flu shot. But I've never had one and don't feel the need said I. He then told me about a guy about 40 y.o. who caught flu the winter…"

"It's actually a UV light in the plenum.  UV is supposed to kill the bacteria, mold, and other germs that pass through the system.  You may also want to get an electrostatic filter, which zaps dust etc. with electricity as it passes…"

"I'd have to remember to look up. We got it as part of a package deal when we had to replace our entire A/C-Heating system last August(Houston, in August, no A/C, SUCKS BALLS)"

David R. replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"I am forced to get a flu shot every season because I work in a healthcare environment and the administration decided I need one because in theory it will reduce risk to patients.  I probably wouldn't get one otherwise. Every season,…"

"I don't.   Basically I am part of the small percentage that might carry the flu, but I don't get sick from it. My body hates me with about everything else, but not as far as flu/cold(though I do get hit twice a year with bad allergies…"

Jeremy replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"Nothing manly about trying to avoid a shot.  It is even less manly to become a carrier for a virus and helping it spread so the weaker segments of the population, the ones on whom vaccines are ineffective, and the people who cannot get…"

Jeremy replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"Strengthens your immune system? That's what the vaccine does.  It gives you a weakened virus for your immune system to fight and develop a defense against.  That's how you don't get the flu after getting the shot. …"

Penelope replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"+1 There are different strains of flu, and they don't put every known strain into the vaccine each year. Six or more months before flu season, epidemiologists try to predict what strains will be most prevalent and make a vaccine with those…"

Penelope replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"It's not effective immediately. It takes about 2 weeks for your body to develop antibodies from the vaccine. Also, it only lasts about 6 months. As an example, because I knew all this, when I got married in early November (so, start of flu…"

Chuck Knight replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"The problem with a flu shot isn't its efficacy.  It GREATLY reduces the chance that you will become sick with the flu.    But it vaccinates you for a specific type of flu.  And the flu is not a single disease.…"

David F. replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"The autism from vaccine is complete junk that has been repeatedly disproved. The reason for the small chance of getting the flu if you don't get the shot is the fact that most people get the shot.  With all the anti-vaccine crap in the…"

David F. replied to Louis-Philippe Kerkhove's discussion Flu Shot
"Sometimes the people who have to choose the formulation 8 months ahead of when the shot is available make a mistake about which will be the top 3 flu viruses.  When that happens people get the shot and still get the other flu virus. Last…"

Greetings from Germany

Hello folks,My name´s Niko and I´m a German reserve officer candidate (currently in basic training). After my 2-3 years of training I will leave the army (being available if needed) and start a studying -probably law-. So I´m obviously interested in all things concerned with the military and leadership. I also enjoy philosophical and political debates. And I´m trying to get into Whiskey. Im looking forward to some nice discussions and advice.See More
