Funny I never have had any symptoms of any kind from the flu shots. I just hate needles yet I man up and know there isn't any great pain.

It is in my head, as I have always hated getting shots. When I was young my mother would come and pick us up from school with my dads car. And tell us we going to go shopping.

My a** as I could smell the alcohol they rub on your arms. I have this 6th sense for survival...

When we first went to Germany we had to get several shots. It took two medical guys to hold me while a two others held or gave me the shots I was yelling and trying to get away. I hate shots period.

Well it was just time B-4 this hit America.. It is called
Middle East respiratory syndrome, or or MERS.

CDC confirms first case of MERS infection in US


Associated Press By MIKE STOBBE 5 hours ago

FILE - In this Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, file photo, Egyptian Muslim pilgrims, some wearing masks as a precaution against the Middle East respiratory syndrome, pray after they cast stones at a pillar, symbolizing the stoning of Satan, in a ritual called "Jamarat," the last rite of the annual hajj, in Mina near the Muslim holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah sacked the country’s health minister on Monday, April 21, 2014, amid a spike in deaths and infections from the virus known as the Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS.

The official Saudi Press Agency carried the royal order that said Abdullah al-Rabiah was relieved of his post as Health Minister, and that Labor Minister Adel Faqih will temporarily take over the health minister’s portfolio until a replacement is named. The statement said al-Rabiah is now adviser to the Royal Court. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil, File)

NEW YORK (AP) — Health officials say a deadly virus from the Middle East has turned up for the first time in the U.S.

No details about the case have been released. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planned a Friday afternoon briefing about the case.

The CDC says it is investigating along with health officials in Indiana.

Middle East respiratory syndrome
— or MERS — first surfaced two years ago. Since then, at least 400 cases of the respiratory illness have been reported, and more than 100 people have died.

Saudi Arabia was been the center of the outbreak
. All the victims have had ties to the Middle East or to someone who traveled there.

The virus has been found in camels, but officials don't know how it is spreading to humans.

Your right..

Except it has come to America now. And this guy did travel by plane so he was in two airports while carrying this virus. Plus cabs & possibly
some eatery...

The CDC says the worst for him to have transmitted this MERS virus might be the people who sat next to him on the plane... Then you have them and all close contact with other people B-4 they seek medical aid.

So again time will tell how many cases this one event might grow into.

This guy is a doctor and was returning from there to Indiana. The customs inspectors and anyone who transported him from the airport etc. are all at risk.

I was just repeating what the CDC is putting out. I was hoping a new news story would come out and level more with the public...

And sense I don't know that much about this virus all I could say was said... Weak yet truthful.. I even said the CDC said...

At my age, "It Don't Mean Nothing."
