I will not get the flu vaccination….the doctors and reports now seem split on this issue (years back they ALL said no flu shot). My personal opinion is that the doctors that say its ok to get the flu shot are like mad scientists and we are their guinnea pigs. So, I will not have a flu shot when the flu is what has caused me to have GBS 3 times!
I guess it is almost anyones guess right now since the evidence is not conclusive either way.
Don’t take any vaccinations, including flu, tetanus or anything else. It could cause your immune system to start attacking your nerves again.
The medical community is reluctant to commit on the subject of vaccinations and they seem to be divided on the subject as well. I can only say that I never will have another flu shot.
ALso, as I am the Denver area liaison, I get a lot of calls. One gentleman in my area, diagnosed with GBS in childhood in three separate incidences, had been excused from undergoing immunizations of any sort for years. SUddenly his neurologist said it would be OK. Patient was reluctant to put himself into possible danger of a recurrence. WHen I suggested that he seek a second opinion, he did better than that–he was tested for immunity of the various diseases. Turned out he was immune to all but one.
Another way to be safe and avoid becoming vulnerable.
