Default Very Sad: Cheerleader Gets A Flu Shot & Now She Can Only Walk Backwards!

I've always been very iffy about all the unnecessary shots and vaccinations out there...this just reaffirms my belief. Messed up.

So there is nowhere in this report that offers any evidence that the flu shot caused this. It is simply posited as a possible cause, but ten days afterwards which seems like a stupid thing to suggest. There are a ton of things that can cause dystonia. You guys are nuts if you think there is some direct connection between the flu shot and this disease, based on poor reporting that aims only to capitalize on people's fears. The American media knows no shame. Crazy.

Oh, but there was a boy floating around inside a helium balloon. Thank goodness I didn't miss a second of that.

I agree, but I do think the media, in any form, is simply a reflection of our society, no matter how ridiculous it may be at any given time.

P.S. Notice how the story's always more tragic when it involves a hottie? "Oh, it's such a shame! She's so beautiful!"

She was a cheerleader about to get married!

Yeah - a reflection of society, but actual news reporting should follow some ethical standards - the rest of the media is going to be nutty no matter what. The problem is that there is absolutely no distinction between news and entertainment. This whole piece is a fluff piece playing on fears at the same time. I don't know how these people can live with themselves.

Everybody at my school would laugh at it. Just something people go through as teenagers I think.

That's actually really fucked up. Did she have flu shots prior to this and be fine, or was this her first one? You'd think she'd have gotten one as a child which would have set it off? Or can somebody get multiple flu shots and this neurological problem randomly sets off (if you have the right makeup or whatever that is, chances are extremely slim). If so, then that's kind of scary to think about. Really sad for her, she had big dreams.

don't be afraid, this video shouldn't scare you from getting vaccinated even though it intended to. She already had the disorder but it wasn't expressed until the vaccination somehow triggered it. The chances of anything happening are slim, just go on an get that flu shot!!!
