Walked into the grocery store, and there they were. They were offering the Fluzone quadrivalent 2020-2021. As an aside, they did warn that it was not a wise choice if I had certain conditions. It was quite a list. Here is how they broke it down:
Before taking this medicine:
You may not be able to receive this vaccine if you are allergic to eggs, or if you have:
- a history of severe allergic reaction to a flu vaccine; or
- a history of Guillain-Barre syndrome (within 6 weeks after receiving a flu vaccine).
Tell your doctor if you have ever had:
- bleeding problems;
- a neurologic disorder or disease affecting the brain (or if this was a reaction to a previous vaccine);
- a weak immune system caused by disease, using certain medicines or receiving cancer treatments; or
- an allergy to latex
- an allergy to eggs
You can still receive a vaccine if you have a minor cold. If you have a severe illness with a fever or any type of infection, wait until you get better before receiving this vaccine.
This savvy parent, Shanna Rathbone, shared a really good lineup of 7 reasons why their family ALWAYS gets the flu shot:
It is illuminating, and we can learn a lot!
Numerous Benefits of the Flu Shot
1.) I want to increase our risk of upper respiratory infection by 4.4x (2nd source)
2.) I want my children to have a 3x risk of hospitalization for flu after getting it cause that means it’s strengthening their immune systems, right? Summary: The inactivated flu vaccine does not appear to be effective in preventing influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially ones with asthma.
3.) I want to play a guessing game – will this year’s choice of strain be well matched to the strain that turns out to be heaviest in circulation, making that vaccine effective?
4.) I want to contribute to the mutation of flu viruses, making them stronger and more virulent. (CDC admits they are only approximately 37% effective due to rapid mutations)
5.) I want to stimulate the economy and contribute to the highly profitable $1.6 Billion business of flu shots.
6.) If I was preggers, I would have a 7.7x risk of miscarriage if I got the flu shot last year.
7.) I want us to potentially cash in on the billions of dollars of claims paid out by the vaccine court for flu shot damages.
Bonus #8.) I want to increase our risk of getting Covid-19 by a whopping 36%!! I mean we’re all going to get it eventually right? Why not speed the process up?!
And bonus #9.) I think I’m deficient in formaldehyde, MSG, dog kidney cells, egg protein, pig gelatin, polysorbate 80 and mercury (aka thimerosal), squalene ( the same ingredient in anthrax vax that causes autoimmune diseases) and some other virus DNA, depending on the brand!

Haha haha……that title!
I was all “whaaa” … I must be on the wrong blog…oh lol 😂
Haha me too!!
Never will we EVER get the flu shot 🙂 or any other vaccines since my 2nd son was injured. 🙏🏻
Oh, Kristie! I am so sorry, friend! Hearing of these injuries makes my heart hurt!
May the Lord bless and help you mightily!
I just had my first prenatal appt for this pregnancy (baby #7, DV), and my doctor told me it was “highly recommended” that I get a flu shot because if I get the flu while pregnant, it could be very serious.
Then he said, “I don’t know your views on vaccines, and I’m not gong to argue about it, I just have to write down that I told you that.” 🙄
OH, MY GOODNESS, Joanna! That is so weird and also sad that he has to document that he said something!
Thanks for sharing that!
Blessings and congratulations on your new baby! I am excited for you all!
They did the same thing to me while I was pregnant and I could not believe it! Why would they want to inject toxins directly into a pregnant woman’s body? No thank you!
Oh my goodness!!! I love this, you totally got me. I was shocked when I saw this show up in my Feedly from your blog. I was so confused and couldn’t resist seeing what you had to say even though I am totally against the flu shot. Reading your reasons just put a huge smile on my face! Thank you for spreading the truth.
The most concerning thing for me right now is how they are pushing the flu shot sooooo heavily during this pandemic despite the scientific evidence that proves flu shots will increase you risk of being infected with coronaviruses and also increase your symptoms if you do get a coronavirus. This is just criminal! I hope many people read your informative article.
Can you believe my child’s school sends an e-mail every single week telling students and families they should get the flu shot? Ugh 😩 luckily they haven’t mandated it but still, so irresponsible of them.

I have NEVER EVER taken the flu shot and I NEVER WILL!!! Lots of GREAT reasons you list here for not doing so!! Shared.
Brilliant… thanks so much for spreading the truth
Just found this article which you guys would love. “31 reasons not to get the c 19 shot”. It reminded me of this post so I tried to email you guys, but it said to post a comment on the blog instead of email. I went straight to this flu shot email because it’s most relevant. So here I am hoping you get this! The article link: https://archive.is/6a3QR
Thank you, Jane! I will certainly take time to read it!
