MAIL-speak on the flu vaccines.

This a tabloid style presentation from the UK MAIL, and though it isn't accurate in comparing the deaths caused by the flu, vs deaths caused by a past vaccine program, it does illustrate one significant point.

Flu vaccines are not for absolutely Everyone. They're appropriate for various health-risk groups. As with every medical treatment, there's the risk to benefit ratio, and this becomes more significant when delivering medical treatments to people who Are Not Sick.

Pharmer was born conservative and has reservations about any medical treatment which is developed in a big hurry.

No matter your personal decision on the flu vaccines, good hand washing practices are preventative. Also avoid touching your face as much as possible when you're out and about. You can avoid a lot of illnesses that way.

And don't FREAK OUT over this H1N1 swine flu virus. That's a waste of your life.
