My OB wants me to get a Flu Shot, and my husband agrees. I am a bit confused by this request. I am to stay clear of foods with mercury in them, and now they want to inject me with dead influenza viruses mixed with Thimerosal (and additive that is MERCURY based). Am I losing my mind?
Not only that, but I have not really been one for western medicine when my illness is a minor as a cold or flu. I have never had a flu shot. I feel paranoid. I was told that it is good for the baby, because they don't get immunizations for the first 6 months. Which I understand. However, is there a shot that is mercury free. I would sob, if I had received the shot, and then my baby had autism (which is linked to the shot)!
Any recommendations? Anyone read this?
I told Kirk, I ill get one, if he gets one. A little quid pro quo action. And even he is hesitant.
