Postby Bright Raven » Tue Jan 30, 2018 8:18 am

It is DEADLY serious. I am wearing gloves when I go to the grocery store or Wal-Mart. I don't get a flu shot. They are announcing that it is not too late. At this point, I am going to hunker down.

They say the flu that's going around, was not in the shot.

Half of Church was missing from about 12-15 to 1-15 seems to be winding down. It was bad this year the Drs office and urgent care facilities were packed.

I'm hearing there's an A and a B strain. Some people are getting both of them. I'm also reading that some the people getting one or both also got the shot. The wife and I don't do those shots so we're pretty much doing a semi-seclusion thing and only getting out around the public if it's a must situation.

We had some kind of bronchitis crude that went through here as well.
Wife and I don’t do the flu shot either.
Mrs and I did catch that crud and I am convinced it came from one of the little bio-hazards in her Sunday school class.

Their may be a better flue vaccine in the future according to the doctor they had on the news this morning. They have isolated a common component of all flue strains instead of the shotgun approach they've been using to make vaccines.

It has been bad here as well, I had a procedure done this morning and the nurse that put in my IV said the flu season has another 12 weeks. So far no family members have had it but at this point I don’t know how we have missed, but hope the trend continues! It is some nasty stuff. Stay safe CT friends!

We had the bronchial/nasal crud here .......back before Thanksgiving.
I took the flu shot not long afterwards and have thus far, stayed healthy.
Business as usual for me. I did eat at Denny's in Jacksonville and Cotton Patch in Palestine Sunday. Will probably come down with anthrax/flu/diphtheria/smallpox all at the same time now.

Ron, I am so surprised you don't get a flu shot, you give your cows every vaccine known to mankind I thought you would apply the same science to yourself.

Kids are disease ridden with school and the high %age of young ones in childcare if something is going around they get it and then bring it home to share with all. If you can keep away from kids you stand a good chance of missing out.

I have heard this too! Everyone in my family and where I work has had it. Some get it worse that others. I do not usually get sick, but spent 4 days in bed, unable to even stand up, because of it. I had to take various meds to combat it and the symptoms for over 3 weeks. My husband just felt a bit under the weather for about 2 days. My 4 year old daughter has been battling it on and off for a month now. Just gets tired and throws a fever for no reason. This is a kid who, otherwise, has not yet been ill a day in her short life. I can tell you I monitor her health like a hawk these days....

Just went to a funeral yesterday. A former neighbor's daughter. Tried to treat the flu
with OTC drugs. Watched her grow up. 42 years old. I guess her health was not the best anyway.
