Facts
The flu vaccine causes more deaths per year than chicken pox.
The direct injection of RSV immunoglobulin, commonly known as the "RSV vaccine" would prevent 16x more deaths than the flu vaccine does, but is too expensive.
There is a vaccine for the plague, and that is why it is no longer an epidemic.
Ebola is caused by vaccines.
There is a vaccine for autism, but it causes mumps.


Opinions
Vaccines do not contain thimerosal, a known toxin.
If you snuck up on your neighbor's kid and cut open his skull, you would be arrested.  But when brain surgeons do it, and charge hundreds of thousands of dollars, it considered "medicine."
99% of vaccines do not cause autism (HT JJ1000).
Every pedi has seen healthy kids become sick physically & mentally hours after a vax (HT Baryochai)
Vaccines cause cancer, infertility, astma, adhd etc (HT Baryochai)

Personal preference and convenience. The important thing is to get vaccinated.

Risk vs reward?

Also @Dan does a flu shot count as a punch for my free pizza?

Even a special shot for the 65+ crowd, higher strength.

We have no side effects with mist and there's no cost. The vaccine has been around for decades, so it's not experimental at all.
Well worth the shot at not catching the flu and being sick for days. Why is death the only consideration?

Considering what you feel like when you get the flu, even if it didn't lessen the severity, which it does, those are pretty good numbers to be working with

Never had a bad accident. If I do, then I will get insurance.

I guess we differ on equating getting the flu to being in a bad accident.
