Vaccinate or not vaccinate

Deciding whether to get the swine flu shot is one of the toughest decisions. I was thinking no way, abd reading your posts suggests the majority vote no way as well. I don’t want to face the beginning of GBS ever again. My days of excruciating pain are gone and I don’t want them back. I have accepted my residuals and I am making great progress with learning to walk. But, I spoke to my neuro last week and he said he thought it would be a good idea to get the shot. He said the flu would have a much harder toll on me. He wants to research it some more. I agree that I have a higher probability of getting the flu, but I also know GBS is not so hard to get either. What is it about vaccines that causes GBS to rear its ugly head. Does anyone know?
I hope you all have many moments of peace today. Life is good.
