I’m worried the Junta of Andalucia have made the influenza vaccination mandatory for those over 65 years of age this year.
My mother who is 86 years of age has never had influenza in her life nor the vaccine. In fact living in Spain for 13 years she has never had a cold!
Surely people should be given the choice as some research suggest not all vaccines are safe for all people.
A private neurologist we know was paralysed a few hours after having the influenza vaccination. She was in a wheelchair for two years and after much help, she now walks with a stick. She is in her forties.
I know it’s rare to be paralysed after the flu shot but it’s common for people to have fever, aches and pains and generally feel unwell after being vaccinated. I don’t want my mother to have those symptoms.
