    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do you receive yearly flu shots? Do you give them to your children?

    Have they helped you (and your children) avoid the flu?

    I've never had one, and i've not had the flu either, for many years.

    I'm fortunate, in that i'm not around a lot of people coughing and breathing on me.

    Just wondering how many do this, and what the results are like.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Sister, I have never had a flu shot either. But one time when I was working in the health field, a women who I used to care for had gotten the shot. Immediately after she had got sick with the flu, and just from me being around her, I'd got a touch of it. It cleared my system very fast, but other than that, I never had the flu and neither have my children.

    Hey sista Destee.

    I know a man who suffered a heart attack as a result of getting the flu shot. I also know a woman who gets the shot every year and it makes her so sick she has to stay in bed but she says the flu would be worse. Yet I have never had the shot nor have I ever had the flu except maybe a mild case like Purple anout seven yeats ago.

    I guess it helps some people but with the way western medicine works I bet if you never get the shot you won't need help.

    I'm allergic to eggs so I can't take the shot.
    My family does but they always get sick shortly after the shot.

    I dont believe in it!

    I dont believe in medi-sin...get it!...medicine, 1000mg of vitaminc is equal to A tamiflu shot medicine is big business here in amerikkka, a billion dollar industry...medicine dont cure illness it just relieve's the symptoms people need to do research instead of hanging onto a doctor's everyword...afrikan holistic health is the best thing for afrikan people!...go to Blackherbals.com...or Drafrika.com and get some facts based on our biological makeup...Peace

    Beloved Ones:

    I never take the flu shot, because one, I always got the flu following the shot, and two, I do not trust the oppressors medicines, unless it is an EMERGENCY, and we can prevent EMERGENCIES when we get back to basics (roots/teas) etc.

    HILY/A
