A little rant...

Ok, so whether or not you choose to vaccinate your kids is irrelevant when it comes to the flu vaccine right? I think everyone knows that getting a flu shot is certainly no guarantee against getting sick. I think it is also pretty common knowledge that sleeping and washing your hands and all that is helpful in preventing and fighting illness right? Amazingly enough the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is angry will Delta Airlines for airing this video...

Apparently this video contains "harmful messages".... MMMMMM kay
Why are they so upset? Because they want you to believe that getting a flu shot is the only solution... In reality it is the only solution that has monetary value for the companies that fund their organization.
This is America where people have a right to freedom of speech and choice right?
