I want to hear what everyone thinks about this subject "the flu shot". Do you think the flu shot causes the flu or prevents it. My father in law got the flu shot last year and then 2 weeks after having the flu shot, he got the flu. Then he passed the flu on to me, my daughter and my husband. I really believe he got the flu from the flu shot. I think the flu shot has a live virus that causes the flu and lives in the body. What are your thoughts on this? Have you ever gotten the flu shot and got the flu a week or two later? Or did it really prevent you from having the flu?

That is possible, one of my friends stopped taking flu shots after she got a bad flu from the last one. You may be interested in the videos that you find in a discussion that I started earlier http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2164639.aspx I donĀ“t know all is true but I know that mercury is used as preservative at least in one sort of vaccine. It is extremely dangerous - especially for unborn children - could cause brain damage.. So better do some research before taking it..
