People who should get vaccinated each year are:
1. Children aged 6 months up to their 19th birthday
2. Pregnant women
3. People 50 years of age and older
4. People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions
5. People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
6. People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including:
a. Health care workers
b. Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu
c. Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated)
Not so fast.
Before you run out and get this flu shot, think again. If you have avoided childhood vaccines because you have concerns about thimerasol and its possible effect on your children, you need to hear this 2 minute phone call to a manufacturer of flu vaccines.
Take another look at those recommendations. That list covers just about everyone. Did you catch that "every year"? It wasn't good enough to pump thimerasol into our little ones under the age of six, now everyone should get pumped full of thimerasol EVERY YEAR.
Then click on the title of this post to go to Mercola.com and look at the second video on that page, which is Dr. Mercola talking about whether the shots work, how much thimerasol is too much, and other ways to protect yourself against the flu. This is very powerful info for you and your family.

This is NOT a sponsored post, and I am NOT getting paid for this opinion. Dr. M. is the real deal, and I am pleased to recommend his newsletter for everything you want to know about alternative or holistic health topics.
