Not sure if this was an attempt at humor, but presumably he was a current employer at the time.

I saw that in another thread, someone reported that his wife contracted Guillain-Barré Syndrome after getting a flu shot. Anecdotes all-- but enough to make me less than eager to get a vaccine which could (but very well might not) protect me against one winter's worth of garden-variety flu. I'm not saying the shot is a bad idea-- just that for now I'm choosing not to get one.

I'm happy to have been vaccinated for MMR, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis, typhoid, yellow fever, etc... so I don't think my not getting the flu vaccine makes me some sort of crazy vaccine denialist.
