BTW – vaccinations

October 3, 2008 at 10:15 am

By the Way … my neurologist recommended I get innoculated for [B]Flu, Pneumonia, and Shingles[/B].

I’m [B]really [/B]reluctant to get the vaccines. From what I’ve read here on the Forum, the “nay” postings are ahead by about 10:1. I have a friend whose mother was given the flu vaccine after remission from GBS and she died. She vehemently advises not to take the vaccine. She even suspects (as do some of you) that a flu vaccination contributed or caused her GBS in the first place. That doesn’t make me feel very confident.

What I don’t have a good feel for is whether the postings here advising against vaccinations are personal opinions or the docs recommendations.

I’d like to run a poll (no, not on the US presidential election) …

Vaccinations: Doctor advises vaccinations
Yes No
Vaccinations: CIDP (or GBS) patient advises vaccinations
Yes No

Would covet hearing your responses and advise …
