    Same with us 2nd back in the 60s.. Lot of fun standing in a line two miles long and those dick wads with the air guns ready to stick yah..
    Well guess what? Those S.O.B.s did not wipe the damn guns off, they just kept shooting.. Whatever the 500 guys in front of you had, you stood a chance of getting.. Fuel injecting their stained blood into yours...
    You Vets get yourselves checked for Hep C.. Even A or B for that matter.. Half the Nam Vets come to my house have hepatitis..
    Their is a vaccination for Hep A and B, but not C..

    As for myself, I will not be getting it, I see quite a few bad reactions, some mild some profound. I say if you are older, immune compromised or have respiratory or heart issues, best you get it.
    True Chiroone. The shot they give us is a "dead viral" strain, of the 2 or 3 many strains their chancing on..
    Can you get the shot and still catch the flu? Yes, but almost always not the ones you got the shot for..
    Hell I get the flu shot.. All the crap I put in my body for 66 years, damn flu probably does not even want in..

    stalker1 - I haven't used a netipot, but the simple saline solution spray will do something similar. Another great thing to have on hand/use is black elderberry (sambucus nigra) tincture or extract. The stuff works great!

    I bought quite a few bottles last year through drugstore.com and it can also be found in cans at wine making places (in case you have a wine making store near by). The extract is the most affordable way to get it. They also sell the elderberry extract at health food/natural health stores. There is also a commercial formulation as a natural flu remedy sold under the names sambucol or sambucus.

    They also sell dried elderberries online (even amazon sells them in 1 lb. packages). Then you can make a tincture. I can post a recipe or two if you need or want them.

    Or for me, I'm going to start a few elderberry trees in the house over the winter and plant them in my yard come spring. Then by the second year they should produce berries and I'll have a renewable supply of elderberry (plus it makes good wine and liqueur ).

    stalker1 - hope you get feeling better quickly. Being sick sucks.
