    I think that it is a stretch to say that the flu shot caused her condition- particularly since she had flu shots twice before with no complications and others who had shots from the same batch did not get sick. I could get hit by a car after receiving a flu shot but I don't think that the flu shot would be blamed for the accident.

    Hey guys, you know on medicine commercials when they say "rare side effects include.." This is one of those cases.

    there is no totally safe medicine.

    I Thought It Was Pretty Clear To not Get That Shot... To Me It Feel Like Common Sense If Its Jst Experimental.

    This isn't about the H1N1. It's the seasonal flu shot. You're probably had it already in school, they administer it yearly.

    This is a prime example of the logical fallacy of post hoc ergo propter hoc.

    "1 occured, then 2 occured. Therefore, 1 caused 2." A man ate pop tarts for breakfast, then murdered his wife that afternoon. Is it a conspiracy in the breakfast food industry? Not likely.

    Haha, you're welcome. I learned so much from those University English classes...

    I thought that would be a logic (or for that matter science) class. Oh well. ;)

    No, we had to do some point-counterpoint essays, and just knowing about the fallacies was extremely handy. It was very easy to prove my point if I could just discredit my opposition. XD
