Yes, I’m afraid it is worldwide. The hospitals are full everywhere from what I see in the news. My whole family has had it and some still do. Not much fun.

I don’t and won’t take any “flu-shots”. Who knows what they are putting in your body. I don’t trust em, sorry.

I take flu shots every year Roger because I have asthma. This is the first year I’ve been ill for the last 12 or 14 years and it was very mild and lasted only a couple of days. We don’t have to trust everybody, but our world does still run on trust to a great extent, and just living is a risk in itself. I consider the risk of inoculation to be fairly minimal, but I know some people do react badly to those flu shots.

My wife works at a elementary school. Flu shots are mandatory!! I was almost never born. They didn’t think my dad would make it in the epidemic of 1918. Then they didn’t think my mother would survive whooping cough. Guess I’m a lucky guy ;-) Polio and TB were almost wiped out, but they are on the come back trail. I take my shots, benefit far out weigh the risks but the risks are too high for all the experimental drugs like Topamax that alter your brain chemistry.

A lot of that flu and similar problems here also. I have my flu shots every year, I can remember back beforethey had them, and I got so bad that I had to get better just to be healthy enough to die. ;-). The kitchenremodel I am helping on has been held up for a week until the gentleman that has the 4’ belt sander gotwell enough to supervise the thickness sanding of the panels we glued up. No way I am going to try to learnhow to run that expensive machine at my age. Reviek, I prefer my cough syrup made from grain products with the help of a nice still.
