  • Read about how viruses work. Is it safe, well, we have to wait to see how it affects genetics or immune systems. Is it effective? No.

  • I dont think so. It was rushed through the trials. There are known physiological problems related to getting the vaccine.

  • I don't think anybody really knows, but I heard the pros and cons and everything else and I will not give it to my kids or myself.

  • It really depends who you ask. As it is, I decided to get a version specifically available for pregnant women (no preservatives, as they contain mercury or something else that isn't necessarily safe). We made this choice because I get sick easily when pregnant, and next flu season, we will have an infant in the household as well as a toddler.

    A lot of people are wary, and if you are wary and not high risk, I'd totally advise opting out. If you are high risk, I'd weigh it out a lot more before deciding.

  • I will never get it or give it my my daughter. Simply because the had a recall on them just about a month ago. I'll pass

  • This is one of those things that no one knows for sure. There are many doctors that differ in their opinion on its safeness.

    Best thing you can do is do research and decide for yourself. Ask your doctor for their opinion.
