Local Doctors Debunk Flu Shot Conspiracy Theories
From my experience I've never seen the need for a flu shot. It's not that I think there's anything wrong with getting one. I just never worried about the flu enough to warrant a shot. And then my daughter-in-law became a doctor and strongly encouraged that my wife and I get one; especially if we wanted to be with their daughter/ our granddaughter. Was it a quid pro quo? You be the judge.
Well now, according to an article on wzzm13.com, a Spectrum doctor recommends that everyone should get a flu shot and takes it a step further. Dr. Kara Whilloughby goes on to debunk a series of conspiracy theories and myths about flu shots. In fact, one of them is a myth that I used to defend my belief that getting a flu shot gives you the flu. My Dr. Daughter-In-Law wasn't buying it either and lets face it, I get the shot because she asked and because I love her and my granddaughter. Check out more of the misconceptions by clicking HERE.
