    Number 1 is wrong! They recently performed a study and found people actually are more susceptible to the flu when cold.

    You had one job hsw.

    I have never got the flu in 15 years and never been vaccinated for that long.

    Nope, I have not had true influenza for many, many years. In fact, in adulthood, I had it ONCE. My son was just a little guy, and my daughter wasn't yet born, so we're talking 24 years ago or there about. And I do NOT permit the mad scientists to experiment on me with flu vaccines. Here's the truth: it is "flu season", and you are sick. You go to the doctor. Because you have flu symptoms, and because it is flu season, the doctor sends you home with a diagnosis of "influenza". BUT! When the CDC analyzes the swabs sent in that carry a presumptive influenza diagnosis, only about 16% of them actually culture an influenza virus. That means that around 84% of you DO NOT HAVE INFLUENZA!!!! That is HUGE! And these stats about 30,000 people dying of flu annually is also bogus. What they are really counting are people who die from pneumonia, sepsis, etc that are concurrent with presumed influenza (which most of them didn't have to begin with anyway!). As for the "flu shots cannot give you the flu" — odd, but if you read the package insert, right there it is. You really can end up with influenza from the flu shot. And speaking of the package insert, it tells you all sorts of things about the horrible possibilities of accepting that flu shot. I could go on and on about this topic, but I won't. Those of you who understand how awful vaccination is already know these things. And those of you who love vaccination will tell me that I am an idiot. Neither one of us will persuade the other.

    After hearing the joke at the beginning of the video, I get the feeling that she is the type of person who might actually do that. Most people wouldn't even think of doing something like that, and hence wouldn't think of joking about it either.

    The flu vaccine dosen't give you flu, instead it's laced with heavy metals & causes autism.

  • Reply Trench January 16, 2016 at 5:50 pm

    People should really do their homework and look at the source This video cited no sources which is trying to push the notion just because they said it it must be true.

    Uh oh. How Stuff Works is working with the government to spread lies about vaccines! They can tell us all they want that it doesn't get you sick, but it does! All those studies were the works of the illuminati! There are no real scientific studies that claim the shot is safe!! And I don't care if I've never seen it myself, but vaccines cause autism! I'd rather have my child dead than for them to be autistic! I'm going to go put on my tinfoil hat and hide in my zombie apocalypse bunker now… See you in 20 years.

    David Rockefeller makes all the money from the manufacturer and distribution of flu vaccine.The mercury is added for population control.

    A simple fact: washing hands before meals helps a lot! And I mean "A LOT"!

    I never have the flu because of that simple reason. Most of people I know, co workers, daughter, doesn't wash their hands before meals. And they get the flu every years.

    I use to get bronchitis and pneumonia often until I took the Pneumonia vaccine 18 years ago. since that time I haven't had this problem. But I suggest that everyone takes a chance of have severe reactions to vaccines and should not take a vaccine unless they are actually vulnerable to being sic

  • Reply Bigg Phillips January 16, 2016 at 11:45 pm

    Vaccines are dangerous and you should read the side effects before taking the vaccine

  • Reply erkdoc5 January 17, 2016 at 4:58 am

    I have gotten the flu shot many times, and I have never gotten it. All of the people in the comments who complain about getting the flu after the vaccine are probably the same people who use a vaccine as an excuse to not wash their hands.

  • Reply GravvyTrain January 17, 2016 at 5:57 am

    I never got a flu vaccine, and never got the flu. big pharma gotta push their drugs though I don't blame em

  • Reply JackTradesman January 17, 2016 at 8:37 am

    being in the cold does compromise your immune system because your body is TRYING TO STAY WARM, how fucking hard is that to comprehend? Also, I hope all you anti vaccine dumb fucks all get tetanus and you thrive in pain until your bones break.

    In my opinion, flu shot isn't an absolute necessity when you're a young, healthy adult. It becomes much more of a necessity when you're old/elderly.

  • Reply BioCyberNaught January 18, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    I honestly don't know why people make a big deal about the flue. Get the yearly shot, or not. It's your choice. If you get sick from anything, deal with it, or not, that's your choice. Have some soup, or not. Take NyQuil, or not. Your body, your choice, and I wish you well.

    Whatever you do, stop talking about the flue. It doesn't matter. Just STFU. If big Pharma wanted to solve it, they would, instantly. But they get to much money to make ethics a priority, so do what you feel is best for yourself and your fact-dependent situation.

    vaccines are garbage. this vid is propaganda trash. why u poison ur body n mind, vaccines are not healthy. they do not promote health you idiots, every single ingredient is toxic to a living cell. u inject it into ur muscle. that's not natural. that's not how you strengthen ur immunity, and I know ur parrot doc says " no its tricking your immune system" but ur tricked. vaccines are garbage turned into money and they make you fear death and disease so u will pump more garb into ur blood and more $ in their accounts. that's y statistics say humans are getting dumber and sicker every year. u think sketchy people don't work hard for money and power? sketchy people do sketchy shit with money and power which is easy to come by with u dummies buying their garbage.
