Watch it. Share it. Then go take a shot for the team — the team being everyone you know and love in the US of A. Or if you aren't going to, at least have the decency to tell me why. (Please include peer-reviewed science links and/or be allergic to eggs.) I really want to know, because this isn't just your health we're talking about.
At :35, they point out that vaccines can't give you the flu, THOUGH THEY USED TO.
At 1:20, they explain how when you get sick right after a shot, it's not what you think.
At 1:58, they explain how flu shots are 85% effective. But, yes, you can still get the flu (though not because of the shot).
At 2:19, they explain how flu shots aren't about you, but everyone you ever go near — including babies and old people.
At 2:59, they explain that the flu will still kill some people — but not because of you getting a shot. There'd be more potentially killed if you didn't. Just sayin'.
And at 3:15, they list who really should not take the flu vaccine. In the words of my friend who REALLY can't get vaccinated, "I'm allergic to eggs so the standard flu vaccine is off-limits for me, and it pisses me off when people who could get vaccinated don't and then infect me."
