Also, there are some people who should NOT get the vaccine. Certain risk factors rule out the possibility, such as allergies to egg or gelatin. If you have or have had Guillain-Barré Syndrome, you shouldn't get the vaccine. If you're already symptomatic, you should wait til you're feeling better, to get vaccinated (whether that's waiting a couple of weeks, or waiting a year; depends on the window of time in which you have the flu, compared to the flu season).

Other than that, it's generally regarded as safe for anyone over 6 months of age.

No vaccine is without risk. Here is a link for the Health Resources and Services Administration Data and Statistics showing that over $4.0 billion has been paid out over the life of the vaccine injury compensation program. https://www.hrsa.gov/sites/default/f...ember-2018.pdf

One should not over think the risks/warning for flu shots any more than they do their myriad of meds they take with significantly more and more serious side effects!.

So true. The decision has to be if the benefit outweighs the risk. Even walking out your door in the morning is not without risk.

That fund doesn't require that you prove it was the vaccine that caused the illness. Might want to learn how that program actually works, before concluding that it means something that it doesn't mean

Quite the contrary. It's up to the victim or his/her survivors to prove that the vaccine caused the adverse side effects. Please keep in mind that the government-sponsored vaccine injury court does not award payouts for people missing work or school. The payouts are for death or life-altering side effects.

The pharmaceutical companies and physicians have been given immunity from possible vaccine-related damages since 1986:

"The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34) was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan as part of a larger health bill on Nov 14, 1996, in the United States, to reduce the potential financial liability of vaccine makers due to vaccine injury claims."
