There's a vaccine for pneumonia?

#3 1 year ago

I am guessing. Not sure.

#4 1 year ago

It's amazing that any dog breeder can manage to inoculate a whole litter of little puppies, but a person working in the medical field can't do a giant human being.

Maybe the nurse got scared he would turn green and smash her face

She remembers how he treated her at the last comicon.....

#7 1 year ago

I'll be interesting to find out if he went to a doctor, or a clinic, or a grocery store...

#8 1 year ago

Tell me again why I should get a flu shot.

#9 1 year ago

Wonder if he charged the $100 to have that pic taken

#10 1 year ago

bill bixby doesn't approve!

#11 1 year ago

Maybe Lou did not read the inserts that come with the vaccines...

Quoted from o-din:

Because the flu is a big killer of old farts like you.

Plenty of anecdotal success and horror stories, but the data shows annual vaccines reduce the risk serious illness and death from the flu.

#13 1 year ago

NuWa.gif It doesn't sound too serious. This vaccine is to help protect 65 and older from getting it. I think you have to do 2 shots a year apart.

#14 1 year ago

Anyone can have an adverse reaction to a vaccination. And yes, there is a vaccination for pneumonia, pneumovax.

#15 1 year ago

Jesus, what did that poor pneumonia vaccine do that Lou hospitalized it???

My old farts kill flu virus before they even get near me. I bet you wish you could say the same.

Quoted from TheLaw:

There's a vaccine for pneumonia?

For the viral form of pneumonia, yes. It doesn't normally take hold in average healthy individuals--usually elderly or individuals with compromised immune systems. The vaccine is usually recommended for adults 65 and older. This is because there really isn't a cure for a virus other than just to treat the symptoms, so prevention is normally the best way to address it.

The more well known form of pneumonia is caused by a bacterial infection, which is treated with antibiotics.

Quoted from vid1900:

In rare cases, sometimes the liquid from the injection can ball up in the muscle tissue, rather than being dispersed and absorbed like it normally should be.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Oh yeah. I remember when I had my tonsils out. They stuck some needle in my arm while I was laying on the table and then walked out of the room. I remember seeing my arm swell up like a tennis ball before they acknowledged my plea for them to return.

#19 1 year ago

Prior to that they had given me some kind of gum to chew that was supposed to knock me out. It made me very drowsy but I fought it. Good thing too, because that needle was hooked up to a full IV bag. I don't know what would of happened, but it seemed they came back in the room just in time.

So you all go ahead and get your shots and medical treatments, and I'll take care of mine.

#20 1 year ago

Don't let them stick a contaminated needle in you (or if your arm is contaminated (like most pinheads), make sure they clean clean it) , you'll be OK

Since those inoculations don't require you to hit a vein, there is no shame in just taking it from the nurse and doing it yourself (if the person looks stupid) .

#21 1 year ago

Come on. I can’t tell if these posts are in jest or not.

Pneumovax is a vaccination against a bacterium, streptococcus pneumoniae.

Viral pneumonia is typically caused by influenza, a.k.a the “flu”, which may be prevented by the flu shot.

Just because someone, even the Hulk, had an adverse reaction to a vaccination, does not mean anything was done improperly.

Read the insert on any medication, bad things happen. Look up Guillain-Barre. That doesn’t mean vaccinations aren’t worth doing. Tylenol and ibuprofen can kill you. How many of you use them every day?

Unfortunately ignorance rules the day here as elsewhere. Don’t confuse a Google search with a medical degree. Jesus.

#22 1 year ago

I hate getting shots

#23 1 year ago

Holy cow....if the hulk gets sick from the vaccine, imagine what it could do to a regular joe! No chance MD's...not gonna get me!

Quoted from bane:

He did not have an adverse reaction to the vaccine itself.

The injection site (or syringe) was contaminated.

The dude took roids for years. Now his muscles are so ruined They can't even absorb a flu shot.
