    Question Covid/Flu vaccine

    How many plan on taking the Covid vaccine shot when it is available? I never take the regular flu shot but I will have to give some thought on taking this new one.

    Seems like a no brained to me. The flu shot is a no brained too.

    Only after it has passed the clinical trials and some have started taking it. I'm definitely not going to be one of the first to take it.

    I'll take it, no reason not to, just like there is no reason to not take a flu shot.

    I always get flu shot every October, the Docs like you to have it in your system a few weeks before holiday season.

    I work for a healthcare company. I doubt I will have much of a choice.

    I wonder if those folks that won't allow their kids to be vaccinated for things like MMR due to their beliefs and such will feel the same away about this vaccine and not vaccinate themselves nor their kids?

    I've already heard of folks saying no way they will take this vaccine or give it to their kids. I say let them stay in their homes then.

    I’ll take the civil vaccine but not the flu vaccine. The flu vaccine is a gamble based on the probability of that single strain being the most prominent for the year, when there’s a crap ton of different strains that can actually be the highest occurance. The last 4 years they got the vaccine strain wrong.

    the covid vaccine is focused on an individual virus strain and is as much of a shot in the dark.

    Apparently, this story hasn't made the national news to any meaningful extent yet. But, it's very promising news with regards to administering hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc. Apparently, zinc is the key component for it to work effectively. Why we're not hearing more of these kinds of stories vs. the doomsday scenarios is beyond me. The MSM pummels the COVID-19 Task Force every day for mentioning this therapy as "dangerous" and "unproven", yet that would seem not to be the case at all.

    From Dr. Cardillo,
    "Every patient I've prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free," Cardillo told Eyewitness News. "So clinically I am seeing a resolution."

    A typical flu shot typically covers 3-4 of the most prevalent, or common, influenza strains based on the data they have on hand when they develop the vaccine. They aren't always spot on, but I'll take my chances WITH the flu shot vs. Without.
    And, BTW, before it comes up. You CANNOT get the flu from taking a flu shot.

    My opinion is people are more interested in what Academia doctors and scientists are saying instead of paying attention to those who are on the lines in real time.
