I feel your pain, I have a phobia of needles, they scare the crap out of me

Wow, that can't be a good feeling, i guess. The only thing i try to focus on while getting one is "The faster You get immune to something the more it'll hurt", it's a rush downhill towards something good, which is scary but... good for ya. Of course You know that... but... well, good luck! Wink

H*I*G*H*L*Y suggest u do some research on your OWN about the dangers of vaccinations before just going along with this.

The dangers far overreach what you've been taught in school.

Wish u the best.

Um... are You serious? This must be the least helpful post anyone has made so far in this forum. What do You mean "dangers"? Either he get them or get ill from simply walking by patients, not that he would even have that job otherwise...

You go, Josh! We hope to read more about how Your new job there is, so keep us updated!

Robin, I agree that vaccinations do have side effects. They are a big money maker for the multibillion dollar pharmaceutical companies, so that's why they are pushed so hard. Personally, I would take just one vaccination per week, so you can see if you get any side effects. If you get like 3 in a day you wouldn't know if you are allergic to one if you get side effects, because you wouldn't be able to deduce which caused the rash, fever, etc.

Well You learn something new every day someone told me once; i had no idea there could be side-effects with shots made to keep You safe from something. But if You are allergic to anything which are present in these shots, wouldn't You know about that from some other shots taken ealier in life? Besides, don't they actually test if people are allergic or not before injecting someone with a full doze of something?

Maybe i should keep out of the Off-Topic section? Wink

Yes, there are dangers to vaccinations, but the chances of having a bad reaction are usually very small.  You could have an allergy, and no they don't test for that ahead of time.  

More serious than a potential allergic reaction is the danger presented by live vaccines.  There are two types of vaccines:  inactivated or dead vaccines, which contain only killed portions of the virus, and live vaccines, which contain tiny amounts of the live virus against which you are being immunized.  Live vaccines can, in very rare cases, lead to the development of the full-blown illness you were trying to protect yourself against.  Inactivated vaccines cannot lead to this.  I'll stress again that this is very rare, and usually only happens in people with compromised immune systems.  And if you have a compromised immune system, you shouldn't be getting any vaccinations to begin with.

I agree that you should do a little bit of research before getting any vaccine, but there really isn't that much risk involved.

Interesting stuff. And how did You all learn about this? I had no idea there were bad guys in all of this.

Here is the worst part of it all I have already gotten all my vaccines in the military problem is. Military records can take months to get to me and I need them by end of this month so basicly I am just getting shots and only shot I really need is the tetanus one again since its been a while and probly could use it.
