Daniel Wee I do understand your point. Flu vaccines should be given to those at risk of contracting the virus, such as infants and those with respiratory conditions, however, its not for everyone. For an active, healthy adult such as myself, I would not anymore opt to have a flu vaccine.

When there is a remarkable increase from 470 cases in 1,292 in just three years, it is cause for concern. Immunization is an important thing.

Vaccination is one of the best medical invention, that can prevent a lot of serious medical diseases and save a lot of life !!!! It is a shame that some healthcare providers do spread the anti-vaccination views !!! It is very irresponsible. Those anti-vaccination views can indeed cause a lot of confusions among the public. We should always try to give the best evidence based medical information to the public. I agree that appropriate measures should be taken against those people should spread a...
