I believe in vaccinations. No; you shouldn't be forced by the government or anyone else, but I think you SHOULD have a flu shot. Here is a story underscoring why.
The story doesn't say if the 16 year old boy had asthma or other breathing problems. The story doesn't say if he was treated with Tamiflu, or other flu relieving remedies. The story doesn't say if his death was related to respiratory problems, nor an allergic reaction.
No matter; a flu shot would have prevented, or at least severely reduced the symptoms. In this day and age no one should be dying of maladies for which there are vaccines.
