Did anyone see GMA this morning? It featured a mother who took her 3 year old (otherwise healthy, he just missed the cut off date by 7 months) from New York to Canada, then stood in the cold to wait for a shot. After recieving it, she told the camera, with tears in her eyes, "This is the best shot we ever got."<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
The CDC has done a great job spreading fear.

i don't know what GMA is. so no, i didn't see it! the best shot? yeah, that's pretty bad. i would ahve continued to ask here about the worst shot they ever got? which one was that? did it make your baby have a seizure and this one didn't? or was it just much less dramatic to obtain, thus not promoting adequate drama and fear of life? sorry, sounds mean but i'm so tired of that crap.

the CDC the AMA the WHO, UNICEF, Homeland Security, all of them and some others have people exactly where they want them. There is no hope.<br><br>
And shows like GMA and 60 Minutes, and others are nothing more than a mouth piece for the big Pharmaceutical Companies.<br><br>
They are the sponsers. They can dictate what is to be shown on TV, what propaganda they want on the air. It's better than any commercial because people believe it's journalism.

"It's the best shot we ever got"<br>
what is this even supposed to mean? A flu shot, I presume? So is she saying getting the shot was a pleasurable experience, or that the flu is the most dangerous thing her child was vaccinated for, or what? Not to be mean, but...duhhh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Maybe she meant we had to drive or fly all the way to another country and it cost me a lot of money and it was expensive and it was such a pleasure...Gosh, I can't figure it out either? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">

Slightly off-topic....<br><br>
I frequent another board where a mother posted about how pissed off she was that her daughter got the flu (real flu - diagnosed & everything) after her pediatrician wouldn't give her a flu shot (girl was too old). As if the shot was 100% effective and nothing would have happened if she'd had it.<br><br>
So I guess that's the best shot she didn't get.

Wow, and I thought everyone knew by now that drugs from Canada were unsafe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I am inclined to think that if I took ds to Necker (<a href="http://www.neckerisland.com" target="_blank">www.neckerisland.com</a>) for a flu shot it might be the best one ever. Although I know Canada has it's plusses, I'm a warm-weather girl. To each his and her own!
