First of all, "Sakile Chenzira, worked as a customer service representative for the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. ..." where she could easily contract, and spread viruses to vulnerable patients. That is why flu shots are generally mandatory for workers in hospitals. i respect her vegan commitment but not at the risk of these.patients. Hopefully there will be future vaccines that don't use animal products.In the meantime, ...My brother is vegan, he didn't get a flu shot, and is presently in an Intensive Care Unit due to douple pneumonia as a secondary infection from this horrible flu. He almost died 2 days ago.
Sakile Chenzira is a very smart woman! I have never had a flu shot and never will because I know how dangerous they are and some of the stuff they put in it. Even health care professionals have been told not to get one because of the dangers. Some of you that are putting her down because you feel she SHOULD have a flu shot need to wake up and do some research and stop being a sheeple and believing the lies you are being told about what is healthy and what is not. Here is just ONE of many examples on what you can find that warns people not to fall for the lies. Just like milk is promoted to help your bones, Milk actually destroys your bones! http://www.bewellbuzz.com/general/10-reasons-flu-shots-dangerous-flu/
Don't believe EVERYTHING you read on the internet Dixie.........but if YOU don't want to get the flu shot, I hope you don;t die from the flu as hundreds have already in SC.......Autism? Really such a hoax......read the story about the fraudulent researcher and how he lost his medical license and recanted to entire study.
So long as your actions do not impact the rights of others, I'm all for your right to choose. Failure to take precautions in a medical facility where your actions could spread disease and result in the illness or death of others is inexcusable.
One word: Fanatic!
She's a Hindu, their religion mandates a vegetarian diet.
Hope she gets the flu and has to stay home and use her sick and vacation days. Well, not really, but people in hospitals should realize how they put the sick at risk. They often have immune problems or are frail.
She hasn't worked for the hospital for quite a while, they fired her for not getting the shot.
Freedom in America is limited to what you will put up with.Really.
Most of my family get very sick after getting the flu shot. Once was all it took for me and I have never had the flu shot or the flu since. We must have a resistense to the flu. Why get a flu shot if you get very sick from it? Doesn't that make sense?
You were probably already sick, and you should not get any shot when sick. You CANNOT get the flu from a flu shot as they use dead germs. Sheesh!
Some vaccines are just weakened viruses, not neccesarlity dead viruses. And yes, many people do get sick after getting the flu shots. Even if the organism is dead it still gets the bodies immune system fired up for it and the immune system itself is what causes some of the sick feelings.
If you get "sick" from the shot, its all in your head. The virus used in the flu shot is a dead virus, therefore, meaning it can NOT get you sick.
Most people don't go home after a flu shot thinking "gee I'll probably get sick because of this shot", whether consciously or sub-consciously. They get sick because the flu shot (even though dead, or weakened) still causes the immune system to react to it causing ill effects.
People should take the flu shot. and stop with the BS excuses why they cannot get one. Unless a person has allergies it should be taken. Life is too short. Use all the tools available to live longer and taking the flu shot will give you that chance
People should do what their instincts tell them are the correct thing to do for them. Stop all the BS that EVERYONE should get a flu shot. Having a healthy immune system is all that is needed to conquer any bouts with the flu. It seems like a tossup as to how many people have died from the flu and how many have died from getting the shots. They gave flu shots in Europe a few years ago and now many people have come down with narcolepsy (falling asleep without warning) as a direct result of the shots.
Religion literally kills.
