    No you came into the thread and characterized the argument as one of some substantive moral debate where each side is correct in their own right and when prodded for more information purposely remained elusive maintaining that 'your research' likens it to the abortion debate. Whereas in reality it's not a debate, it's common sense and science versus indefensible emotional idiocy and by equivocating that fact you are buying into the idiocy.

    We know about the shots and availability, I think I even posted the availability schedule somewhere earlier in the thread.

    And you might want to work on your own reading comprehension skills before attacking others.

    Interesting look at psychogenic conditions here:

    The concept of what are now called psychogenic symptoms is a tricky one for various reasons. There is an unfortunate stigma attached to the notion that our brains can cause physical symptoms. Making the diagnosis is complex. Outcomes are variable and are hampered by the difficulty in communicating the diagnosis to patients. Psychogenic symptoms often mask underlying physiological disease. And the risks of both false positives and false negatives are high.

    This complexity leads some to argue, in essence, that psychogenic symptoms do not exist at all – that the diagnosis is a cop out, a way to blame the patient for the failings of the physician. But this approach, ironically, is a cop out, because it seeks to white wash what is a real and complex disorder with an overly simplistic and moralistic approach.​

    i'm confused because i want to get the flu shot whenever it's available to me i'm panicking?
    because the news is generally always sensationalist they are also panicking?

    i don't get it.

    i don't get it either. none of the people who think the vaccine is medically sound are also posting about how we're all gonna die or anything. just that it's a good idea to get the vaccine when it's available to your demographic. seems reasonable.

    i also don't get that marmaduke cartoon...but i never got those.

    to be fair, i did post some statistics regarding prior flu's, but i meant that to be more informational and a "why people/i am getting the shot" than panicked.

    whatever. i'm panicking!!!! I WANT MY SHOT NOW?

    Oh I thought we were posting idiotic, non-funny comics that had nothing to do with anything. My bad.

    that sounds like too much work.

    without flashy's posts i wouldn't even know where to go to get my shot (thanks flashy) and would probably be like asking all over the board since i'm too lazy to look things up sometimes. asking in a lazy, but panicked, fashion of course.

    does the flu shot cure dystonia? because that would be awesome. two mangoes with one stone as my dad always says.

    So... while there is definitely some degree of hype that's fueling this, given that we don't know how long the wave will last, that getting the flu either sucks immensely or causes death, and that young people and young adults are most at risk, people are still opposed to the shot because of the hype? Wow. I wish that worked on Scotiabank.
