Please do not look in the mirror while posting again. Thank you.


From: Hawki63 on
top posted...sorry

so Janster...which of your innacuracies are you referring to

as I see you deliberately avoided facing the data that disproves your
following statements

again...

see www.vaccinesafety.edu/thi-table.htm

scroll down to the flu vaccines section ....and THEN explain to the group
how you have no clue of what you are talking about...not a surprise tho
