    See it's funny to allege a normally functioning person has an intellectual disability because it means he's not smart at all haha see

    Someone in the office mentioned flu shots and said something like “well haven’t you heard about that person that ended up paralyzed from a flu shot?” My associate who is very quiet and very timid (Creighton grad so I knew what I was getting) didn’t miss a beat and replied “Yeah, I did read that, it was from a very rare disease and an ever rarer linkage of that rare disease to vaccines. Did you hear about that guy in Wisconsin that had to amputate his limb’s due to a rare allergy to dog saliva? Just to make sure you’re safe you better go home and put down your dogs and all of your neighbors dogs.”

    Was reading CDC guidelines around flu vaccine and they recommended October since August or July might mean immunity wears off sooner in the season.

    Will get early October.

    It is in your head when you get it has no effect on its efficacy it is meant to last the entire flu season. Some good news the senior dose is quadrivalent for the first time this year.

    Random tangent... my sister posted on facebook asking for advice on getting this and a flu shot so of course the idiots came out in full force. Texted her and asked why the fuck you’d trust their opinions over your doctor. Luckily a pediatrician she knows messaged her separately and talked her through it all so she got them.

    Don't get the flu shot until mid October at the earliest. People who get it early are dumb and probably vote republican.

    I think a more interesting question is...

    For those of you who don’t get a flu shot, will you get a covid-19 shot when they’re ready to go?

    I think we’ll hear some consistency with the “No” crowd on both... would make sense.
