Just do as you're told and get the flu shot

  • Article
text size: AAA

The Jan. 10 front-page headline on the flu vaccine story is typical of the medical establishment and the media that blindly follow them: "Just get the shot."

Don't do your own research on its safety. Don't find out what ingredients are in the shot. Don't consider alternatives for staying healthy. Don't learn about side effects. Don't ask what scientific studies have been done on it. Don't ask for data proving its effectiveness. Don't ask questions.


Just do what we say. Just get the shot.
