      • Terry, I heard it just a few days ago on the news. According to what I just looked up it may have happened in 2013. I am getting conflicting information..Either way it’s a tragedy..

      • Yes, it doesn’t matter when it happened. What matters is it did happen. Thanks for letting me know. We, the people, should not believe everything we hear or see on TV. Much of what is advertised in any form is for money, not so much for our benefits

  1. Terry, Please check your facts. http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg/2014/11/03/shocking-report-on-flu-vaccine-is-neither-shocking-nor-correct/

    To quote this article in Forbes, which also quotes Snopes, First, as Snopes.com has already pointed out, Doshi is not a virologist or an epidemiologist, but rather an anthropologist who studies comparative effectiveness research. He never conducted influenza research at Hopkins. (He’s now an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Pharmacy.) Second, Doshi’s 2013 article was an opinion piece (a “feature”), not an original research article, and it did not report any new findings. Third, it is highly misleading to suggest (as the anti-vax article’s title does) that Doshi somehow represents Johns Hopkins University. At Johns Hopkins Hospital, the flu vaccine is required of all personnel who have contact with patients, as a good-practices effort to minimize the risk that a patient will catch the flu from a caregiver.

    Please read the whole article. I have a Public Health degree, and always get a flu vaccine. Don’t let the fears of a few stop Americans from being protected. An average of 30,000 people per year die from the flu each year in the USA and the best protection is the flu vaccine.

    This man spent time at Johns Hopkins as a post doctoral graduate student. He is not a spokes person for Johns Hopkins or anyone else.
