it is hard to know about vaccinations. so much politicking and misiformation and all that.

there has been a temptation to present the anti-vaccers in a very negative light and to be overly dismissive of what i think are some very genuine concerns.

i was surprised when i got the flu vaccination to basically end up mostly in bed with what felt to me to be a low level flu over the next couple days. Apparently that is a normal / common response / reaction to the flu vaccination.

i cant' remember the last time i got the flu...

i haven't been sick in years and years. once i quit smoking and my immune system had seen most things under the sun my health is really robust these days. but the flu vaccine wiped me.

whatever batch it is that we distribute to the homeless in Auckland City.

my more recent experience of how we basically seem to go out of our way to select for psychopaths to study medicine doesn't have me feel particularly like the medical establishment (in this country at least) has the health of the population in mind.

my experience of general and public health seminars and the like in Otago were very much 'us vs them' mentality and the people who use the public health system were very much the 'them'. that hasn't inspired me to think that the general practitioners in New Zealand have much of any concern for the 'other' who they are spend .2 of a job doing stuff to... or whatever it is that they do...

not particularly motivating or inspiring.
