|« Type A With Acid Reflux||Does Blood Type B Live Longer? »|
I work in a hospital as a physical therapist (B+) and am constantly exposed to sick patients. A free flu shot is offered annually at this time to employees. My question: Is it beneficial for me to be immunized or take my chances and risk becoming infected with the flu virus? I have not taken it so far due to some concerns about the effects on my immune system. Thanks for you help. By the way I have enjoyed your book.
You are probably better off with the flu (excepting, of course some really LETHAL variant) as the protection from an actual case is more long lasting, and type B's can get weird vaccine reactions. Elderberry inhibits neuramidiase, the enzyme used by the influenza virus to attach to the nose and throat, so perhaps a cup of elderberry tea before work would be a good idea.
