Here’s some worrisome stats: according to a new national survey of 700 parents, more than half think that the flu shot actually will give you the flu.
And, one third of respondents say the shot just doesn’t work at all. Folks, who thinks the flu shot is a conspiracy?
That’s 30%. And, 28% said they thought the vaccine causes autism.
This is a big concern for health officials as you can imagine, seeing that we are at the beginning of flu season. They maintain that “the flu vaccine is safe.”
They say to “talk to a doctor you trust to get credible information based in science and facts.” There however was some encouraging data that came from the report: “about 70% of parents said the flu shot is the best way to protect their child from the flu.”
Again, if you have concerns, always consult your physician.
