Tomorrow Zach will be taking the kiddos to get updated on their shots (again) while I get my hair cut. While talking about it I told him I really didn't want them to get the flu shot. He began to question me on why not (but was joking, I guess). He has to get it for work. I've never had it, nor have the kiddos and we've all been reasonably healthy (sometimes I like to think more so than those who get it). Then again, we're not out and about in all those public places where the germs multiply- daycare centers, public schools, etc. I go a little crazy when we go to Wal-Mart, explaining not to put their hands by their faces and as soon as we're in the car they're being offered hand sanitizer. Sometimes I'm even leery going to church because of the germs that spread throughout the children. Anyway, I looked up some information on the flu shot.
I am not big on vaccines and all as it is. Well, I cam across this article by Mary Starrett.
Could this be a self-fulfilling prophecy? No wonder they're predicting a worse than usual flu season!
