Flu shots ...................That time of year again



Murdoch? Then which publication is Mr T behind? …



This article is a timely reminder about the possible consequences of getting the flu.


It appears that Australians have been relatively lucky regarding flu this year thanks to more people getting vaccinated and some lucky guesswork with this year’s vaccination combination.

An article regarding anti-vax idiots advertising their stupidity on a billboard in Qld.

These people have no regard to the safety of their own children or anyone else’s children.

I have posted a photo of a gravestone at the Thornborough cemetery. Thornborough was the gold mining town in FNQ which was responsible for Cairns being established.


The Murphy family headstone lists Michael and Joseph dying at 17 months, Elizabeth dying at 11 years, Kathleen dying at 7 months and Francis dying at 3 years and 6 months.

My wife and I have visited this cemetery, and this headstone is one of the saddest monuments we have ever seen.

No doubt their devasted parents would have welcomed any medical solutions that could have saved their 5 children.

My wife’s maternal grandmother was one of 9 children, of whom only 4 survived to 4 years old and grew to adulthood.

Getting a flu shot will make me sick?
