Ironically it is not usually the poor on social benefits that are the problem, it is the upper middle class housewives that have become the pseudo-intellectuals in anti-vaccination ranks. Penalizing social benefits will not effect these people as they are not usually on benefits, perhaps we could fine them $1000 per child or similar.
Obviously in their opinion, google and "Days of our lives" must be more scientifically accurate than Lancet or the American Journal of Medicine & immunology.
Every year a variety of mutated flu's appear, that's how it survives.
I had the flu vaccine last year and was sick for 3 months!!!
It is highly likely, being flu season, you have picked up a dose of one of the other lesser prevalent flu viruses, rather than the worse one you were immunized against eg H1N1.
Did you get your shot after sitting in a waiting room full of sick people perhaps?
It could very well be just coincidence but you have automatically assigned the cause of your 3 month flu bout to the vaccine. It ain't necessarily so Pegg.
Your children only have half your DNA the rest is from the father. The reaction to the kids can be quite different to your reaction. If you refuse to vaccinate on the basis of your evidence, I would have no hesitation banning you from my children's school if I had the option.
