What's the big deal about offering the vaccine? No one is rounding people up and forcing them to get shots are they? Educate your people and let them make their own decisions. A group of people living in close quarters make it a high risk group to spread the flu. But there is always a chance the shot will cause you to get a mild case of flu. Personally I never get the vaccine, but your members might consider it. Their immune system can be compromised by things like stress, exhaustion, and poor diet. Maybe get a supply of Tamaflu, it can be used both for treatment and prevention.

Eee . . .

Now that is a bit scary. I say that because you have no way to know if someone has instituted some new experiment . . . if you don't know for certain who is administering the shots its impossible to trust what's in them.

I mean - Tuskegee experiments of the 30s and 40s, PB pills during the first Gulf War . . .

It would make me nervous - especially when you consider the large private institutions that are seriously threatened by this movement.

Before someone sticks a needle in your arm you really need a basis of trust - because you really can't know what's in the syringe.

I've had a flu shot myself - and it makes sense at least to me, that folks at the 'camp-in' should get a flu shot - but not from just anyone in a lab coat.

That's just crazy.

I normally don't. There is not enough flu vaccines for people who actually need them. Also, I too am a little weary of random flu shots in an enclosed place with hundreds of people getting shots at the same time. They DO make you a little sick, even really sick if you are already sick with another cold (sleeping in the cold weakens the immune system).

This is a trick. Those shots have microchips like they put in pets to track and identify you. Don't get one.

Is this worse than the contaminated Koolaid the protestors are obviously drinking?
