Video: How the Flu Vaccination Works

Subject: The shot takes a some burdon

The shot takes a some burdon off of the immune system and people who get it generally experience better health. Studies have shown that people with a bun in the oven who do get the shot tend to have more healthy little-ones than those who do not get the shot. If it's working for them, it's probably doing some good for me too.



I was pretty shocked to see the video depiction of "covering your mouth" showing someone sneezing right into their hands. Current wisdom suggests sneezing into a paper tissue which you then discard, or into a clothed sleeve.

Do you know what actually is in the vaccine besides the actual flu virus? Educate yourself before you vaccinate and then ask yourself is this necessary. The toxic excipients or ingredients such as aluminum and mercury in vaccines are dangerous. Would you drink this stuff? Why not?



I just watched the video on the flu shots and I think it is one sided. I know a few people who got VERY sick after they received their flu shots. One person even got the Guillian-Barre Syndrome post the flu shot and has had relapses from it. This is one of the side effects and those who are advocates for these shots do NOT warn people about these side effects.

I think it is a big money maker. I am not worried and wouldn't waste my time.



Mercola who is widely respected calls the flu shot a witches brew of toxic elements and backs up the statement with research and citations. I am a very skeptical person and am always watching him like a hawk to see if he tips over into quackville at some point, but to his credit I have to say he convinces me still with hard evidence and sound reasoning that resonates:

The Hidden Risks in This Heavily Promoted Seasonal Routine...

I don't promote him generally but this issue generally gets one-sided treatment, as it appears to be getting here on angie's list, which disappoints me frankly.

I am not anti-vaccine and would be interested to know the negatives about Pasteur, but Salk clearly succeeded in curing Polio with Vaccination. I don't believe Mercola is anti-vaccine, but rather, like me, believes the vaccines could be administered with fewer poisons in the potion. Of course, there is also much research which shows the flu vaccine does next to nothing, you should Google that too before getting the shot. Mercola like anyone advises avoiding unnecessary treatments like that, but you don't need to take his word for it, Google other supporting evidence showing the flu vaccine does little for you. So why stick it in your arm then? (Hint: the pharmacological industry makes a lot of money from it, and spends some lobbying doctors and politicians in their offices in person. Sorry, but that's not crazy, it's a fact, ask your doctor if they've received a visit and how many times.) Best wishes to you this flu season, and I hope whatever you choose to do works well for you. You never know, I may find I'm the one that's wrong... but just so you know, it's been years so far and I'm still convinced by extensive annual reading... it's your body.



Check out Dr Mercola on line. He will explain the dangers of flu vaccines. Vitamin D3 is good to take to prevent getting the flu

I totally agree with Catryna White. When I got flu shots I always got the flu that lasted about two weeks. When I stopped it, I also stopped getting the flu! But I also take natural herbs that work.
(I worked in 20 countries, where I learned that medical procedures in the United States is among the worst in the world.)

Got a Flu shot at Sheridan Express Pharmacy from the Pharmacist. In and out real fast, no waiting.



I enjoy Scinece Fiction as much as anyone, but not this kind. Vaccines are based on the lies of Pasteur.

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.
