One would think so Rick. I haven't had a flu shot in about 40 years. Haven't had flu either.

Last year I got tired of my doctor’s bugging me about it and got a pneumonia shot. Sure enough, three weeks later I got pneumonia. Never again..

Remember the Swine flu? Avian flu? Avian Flu 2? Nothing ever happened. These are scare tactics by big Pharma to sell more and more drugs. Ask your doctor if your ready for Celestia or whatever is being pushed on TV this week. If I have to ask my doctor if I'm ready for 'X' drug I've got the wrong doctor.

Right John. Watch the commercial for the drug du jour. Fifteen seconds of how wonderful the product is and 45 seconds of side effects which are usually worse than whatever it was you had in the first place.

I often wonder why anyone would want to use any of these products. It often seems the cure is worse than the disease. The ones I love are the ones for mental problems. They only work in 1/3 of the patients. 60% is passing in school yet in these 30% is acceptable. But ask your doctor if ''X'' is right for you. What's happened to our society? And, why do they use young people to advertise Viagra? I'm laughing right now but it's not funny.
