Guillain-Barre Syndrome and Flu Shot?
I am NOT trying to walk down the paranoia road here but I'm scare about the flu shot and the side effects.
In 1976, vaccination with the flu shot was associated with getting Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
Guillain-Barré (pronounced ghee-YAN bah-RAY) syndrome is a disease in which the body damages its own nerve cells (outside of the brain and spinal cord), resulting in muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. GBS can last for weeks to months.
Apparently (from what I have heard) the government has given total immunity from prosecution to all makers of the current H1N1 vaccinations. I have also heard those vaccinations have had very limited trails and were RUSHED into production.
So it looks like to me there is a real possibility for increased risk of Guillain-Barré Syndrome in people who get the H1N1 vaccination.
So what do you thing about this, should I get the flu shot?
