No coincidence to me!

I never liked getting a flu shot…felt like I had a better chance of missing the flu on my own, especially after seeing so many folks get sick following the vaccine. But, working in healthcare, it’s practically mandatory to get a flu shot.

The CDC says the flu is more common than GBS so it’s better to get the shot. That’s probably why the neuro md hesitated to blame the vaccine but he had a hard time explaining why my GBS onset was two days after the respiratory infection started.

Hey deanop, aren’t you near Duluth? Just wondering. I used to live there in the 70’s. Got a good friend in Carlton / Wrenshall…Jay Cooke State Park. Beautiful place in the fall!

Take care.
