The flu shot, heavy marketing begins now; what should you ask before deciding to inoculate yourself and your family.
Well, the great push to inoculate us with the flu shot. The flu that we inoculate against is the strain that existed in China last year. The theory states that the virus will make itself around the world, so inoculation against this strain should keep us safe; maybe.
Does an inoculation require an injection or some other method of entry? Possibly, except our government and the drug companies join together to figure out which strain or strains you should be exposed to. Since the entire machine of creating these vaccines can take quite a while, they have often guessed wrong, yet, people had reactions to the vaccine that was for a problem that was never going to occur.
Another form of inoculation is just regular exposure. This can include getting on a plane, train or bus or even going to a place with lots of people and crowds. This is exposure as well. If you are exposed, your body will fight it, just as it does when it is artificially introduced into the body by a pharmaceutical preparation, however, the advantage of this type of inoculation is that your immunity is for what is currently present and affecting people in your area, rather than guessing which has often proved to be hit or miss.
