Is anyone else sick of hearing commercials about how you need the flu shot? Maybe it is just since I started looking into vaccines, but I feel like they are pushing it more than ever before. It seems like they use to recommend it for children and the elderly and now they say EVERYONE needs it.

I have Walgreens on my FB page, so I could get a free picture, and they recently put a post about how everyone should get the shot. I was actually quite impressed with how many people said they weren't getting it. Here's the page, not sure if the link will work--

I agree with this. It seems that everywhere that you go, you can get the flu shot! I hate seeing it!!

Well I dont watch tv anymore...just movies and such...BUT I got this flier the other day from a Jehovah's Witness....And it was talking about what they believe...in the center there was a story (that I honestly didn't read) about a man that had Hep B...I'm not really sure how it was relevant BUT there was a big side bar that said "If we vax against this we can lower the incidence....starting with newborns since children suffer from this also" or something like that....

I was just thinking WHY OH WHY would they use a "who are we" chance to advertise vaccines...I dont get it....So the next time that guy comes knocking I'm going to point it out to him.....

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I'm surprised a religious tract was pushing for vaccines.

Yep, I am so tired of always hearing about it. I get fliers and cards saying Caleb is "behind" on his shots, everywhere I drive there are signs talking about this and that vax being on "sale".. the other day I went to the local grocery store, and they were advertising that if you bought the flu shot for this much, you'd get this much off your grocery purchase (don't remember what the numbers were).

I don't watch much TV, so I don't see many commercials, but everywhere else I see it makes up for it >.<.
