Flu Season (this is for the Anti Russian anti Vaxxers)

Post by mrag » September 11th, 2018, 4:43 pm

I have an annual October visit to my EP and cardiologist who are based in the giant Petri dish called Univ of Pennsylvania Hospital in downtown Philadelphia. If one is looking for microbes or bacterium, it's an excellent starting point. Oh, and if one reads (a large assumption here), perhaps one is aware of a few plane loads of folks at JFK and Newark recently landing and already suffering flu like complaints.

That could suggest to those paying attention, that it might make sense to ignore the CDCs usual recommendation of getting an annual flu shot at the end of October and move it up a bit on the calendar.

Typically, a flu shot takes two weeks to kick in. So I think I'll get mine next week. YMMV

We should be at the end of our flu season, and it has been a good year. I don't know anyone who got the shots who got the flu, so obviously the new vaccine is working well. Where I live nearly everyone was sick last year and we had 3 deaths, this year, it has been as normal. So don't be apprehensive this year, the shots we got work.

I have to agree. I only saw four (4) commercials for law firms suing over the latest flu vaccines in the past 3 days, so it must be pretty good stuff. I would however recommend you avoid the new self winding defibrillator models based on the number of class action suits currently drumming up business on the telly... lmao4dx

Nothing to do with him, this is real here in the UK though. Someone it seems has been spanking the wrong kind on Monkey.

Actually monkeypox is a real thing with people dying from it.

I hear they are saying the same thing in Puerto Rico.
