He's an adult. He chose to get the vaccination on television.
All the calls to "test him!", coming from people who are advocates for informed choice, seem rather bizarre. He's an intelligent person and not without resources: if he wants to be tested for flu he'll find a way, I'm sure.
It's not a matter of him wanting to get tested. He should get tested if he is going to be lumped in with all the supposed flu cases this year.
I, specifically, am not calling for just him to get tested. Everyone should get tested that has flu-like symptoms. No one is answering my question... Why isn't everyone getting tested? The numbers of flu cases would be more accurate, correct? Maybe not 100%, but perhaps, closer to 100%. Why is this a problem??? If this is the worst year ever for the flu, and the government, media, pharm. companies are going to push the flu shot as aggressively as they are, shouldn't we have a clearer understanding of what the numbers really are? All the scare tactics this year haven't persuaded me to get the shot, but I'd like to see some real numbers on cases. We should all be privy to that information.
