Have you looked in the mirror lately? And, to use your childs' condition of RSV for any excuse to reply is very weak.

Anto, I would agree. And I hope that your post may help with RSV. This could help anyone whom just does not know. Prevention may be the best?? Who knows.

Topeka.... Now I get it.

"an oxygen tent, and then have to give them Albuterol treatments and clap them with the infant percussor"

If your childcare provider is still attempting to manage RSV in infants and children using these techniques, then you should immediately demand to have your childs care transfered to a provider who is up to date and competent.

So you are in the parts store..looking at parts I'm guessing. Did you buy any parts? And her lower back was exposed. Did the tats have any arrows pointing in any particular direction?

I was at the parts store today and there was a chick ahead of me in the queue that was mildly stimulating in a slutty way. She had tats on the back of her neck and lower back.

Is that what is meant by "business up front, party in the back"?

I always get a flu shot. The one year that I forgot (many years ago) I got the flu; painful reminder. Just one more way, along with others mentioned above, to have a healthy winter season. Just do it!

As long as all of the rest of you get flu shots....I'm good.

I found a source that claims, in vaccinated populations the incidence of flu is reduced by an average of only 6%. If this is accurate I suppose one would want to weigh the cost benefit of the whole thing. Plus only a few of the currently popular strains are protected against. Out of a couple of hundred.

I would want my other shots before I go camping. Is there a vaccine for chigger bites or back lotion?

"We have small kids one of which had RSV. So all the tough guy comments about not needing the shots just sort of piss me off........." - BABBOY

There is currently no vaccine for RSV, but did you know that proper hand washing and disinfection of surfaces, and other vectors of transmission can reduce the incidence of RSV by 93%.

I know it is difficult to see your child lying there in an oxygen tent, and then have to give them Albuterol treatments and clap them with the infant percussor,

Maybe you should look into your childcare provider hygiene practices.

Proper hand washing, surface disinfection, and other hygiene practices can also reduce the spread of influenza by about the same amount.

“I am completely against flu shots and vaccines of any kind. I think they’re latent with things that make you sick.”

Once work safe mode is turned off I see she has tatoos in places girls don't usually have tatoos. And exposed boobies.

It's a "condition of employment" at my work.

Somedude, you must be a Pesci fan too. Modeling gloves was my first thought. Get the flu shot. It won't kill you (except in very rare cases.) In the early 1900's the flu killed 1000's

Renee Boult, model, Los Angeles...."what do you model, gloves?"

You cannot get the flu from a flu shot!!! Wait, YOU CANNOT GET THE FLU FROM A FLU SHOT!!! That is a 100% fact. Very small amounts of the population might have an allergic reaction to the shot (and that doesn't mean you get the flu, red arm and sore but steroids fixes that)

Get you GD flu shots so that your disgusting body does not go around getting others sick because if you get the few worker bees sick, who will pay for your social welfare?

RoeDy sees more needles each year than he can count. Even the dentist gets carried away. Yesterday he had my head so numb I chewed off half my lower lip while eating supper. Tastes like chicken.

Sigh............ seems like just about a year ago we had this question. Got a flu shot in the early 80's where I worked, they told me to get one. Gave me the flu. Never took one again and never had the flu again. I'll take a shot of bourbon, please.

When was the last time you washed your hands well?

But she has no problems with a bunch of plastic jammed in her face and a bunch of chemicals in her hair.

Golf clap for snap. Every now and then that boy says something that makes me grin.

Now it depends. If you are elderly or have some other issues that would make you more vulnerable or have a compromised immune system...by all means, get the shot. If you are a reasonably healthy and strong person, maybe not, but it wouldn't hurt.

Renee person, you my dear are a flaming idiot.

I kind of need a few days off work just chilling in bed. So I'm skipping it...

I know two people who have only had the flu one time. Both of them came down with it after getting a flu shot and both said they'd never get another one.

There are two groups of people, those that get vaccinated and spreaders.

Eat oranges, natures A-Team. And stay away from the dirty bird. And the filthy back alleys. And communists. Also wash your hands. And no hand sanitizer can replace good old soap and water kiddies.
