Your choice

Dear Doug,

You have the right to choose what you think is best for you and your family. You choose to get a flu shot, and you have your reasons. There are times that people need to make a choice, or choose what they think is best for them. And that’s fine. However, there are risk.

When I saw this thread, being a flu shot victim 10 yrs ago, knowing what I know, and got GBS/CIDP and Transverse Myelitis (severe axonal CIDP – get IVIG treatments every 3 wks) from a flu shot, I just wanted to give you all the information I could before you got the influenza vaccination. If you read the GBSFI Article, 11 out of 311 is more than a risk…it’s more like playing Russian roulette with a needle (my opinion). Would you stand with 310 other people that had GBS and hold a hand grenade…knowing that 11 out of the 311 grenades were going to explode? Something to think about.

Best Regards.
