I knew an adult who got MS. As far as they can figger for a cause was a flu shot but it was unprovable. I do fine without them but worked with a guy who got it immediately after getting a shot. He never got another flu shot.
I don’t have a problem getting the flu. Sure, it sucks and I’m miserable but, I am less risk that having someone inject me some goo that might do more harm.
Skip that. When I took flu shots three years in a row, while taking care oh my 97 year old friend I still got the flu.
I just dealt with it and enjoyed plenty of chicken soup.
I have MS, I didn’t get it after a flu shot, but it did present itself within a few months after getting the Hep B vaccine series(I was working in the health field back in the mid-90’s) and Hep B vaccine had become a requirement.
Since MS, I had the flu shot a couple times, and had a pneumonia vaccine, and each time I’d have a vaccine, I’d have an exacerbation. Coincidence, maybe...and only anecdotal, but my neuro said “No more vaccines for you” and that was years ago, I took her advice, and I’ve never gotten the flu.
