No, you should get the shot if your doctor says so. While it won't prevent you from catching it, the vaccine should make it so IF you do catch it, the case will be mild.kalm wrote: ↑Wed Mar 15, 2023 6:08 amSo according to Seagriz I don’t really need the flu shot despite my compromised immune system. Do you agree?Winterborn wrote: ↑Wed Mar 15, 2023 5:43 am
I will expound a bit as soon as Klam answers my question.
Are all previous vaccines against viruses such? Of just corona viruses or just airborne viruses?
Am I, my family, all of my sibs and my wife’s sibs, and almost all of our closest friends just lucky? (Not all of them could socially isolate, and two are nurses who worked Covid wards.
I won't get into this too far, but guys like Eric Topol are finally talking about making the vaccines ones that you sniff up the nose. If we can train the mucosa, like it does when you normally catch a virus, that would really help the flu and COVID shots.
The mucosa is the first line of defense and we bypass that when we inject vaccines. When the doctor recommends flu shots for my kids, I've always requested the nasal versions. Actually stated in this thread multiple times that if you could create a whole attenuated virus that you sniff for COVID, I'd be fine with that.
