With more than half of U.S. states experiencing high levels of flu-like illness, ERs across the country are seeing a surge in business -- and some are struggling to keep up.

No one ever thinks to ask if the flu shot is causing the unusually high levels! I know of a few people who got the shot and had a horrible flu reaction. I got it this year myself...it lasted 24 hours...done. I didn't get the shot...Just got the flu. Nothing to go to the hospital over...it's only the flu...Never had to go to the hospital for it...nor will I ever get the shot...It makes no sense when my body can handle it on it's own. We (as a culture) are so quick to over medicate!
 
did they get any other symptoms?

I haven't had the flu for more than 20 years. Never had a flu shot.
 
You are blessed by God, aka Reality. Many get the flu even more then once a year for some that work in metro areas where varied strains cross paths.
 
Ron, same here. I can not recall if I ever had the flu in the past 30+ years. Never get/had a flu shot.

Funny how you never see any status on that.
 
it is possible to survive, I have had the flu this season and managed to make it all on my own
 
Please don't go to work sick! No one wants to catch the crap from you
 
I'm just getting over the flu. Caught it from my fireplace.
