I have never had one in Asia but I have had a few bad flu here....I think partially due to low resistance from my weakened immune system.

I have to completely agree with you on this. Everyone I know who gets the flu shot will get the flu. Those who don't get it rarely. I would rather ensure my food and nutrition is good and let my body fight it.

You are right. There is a lot written about the side effects and it is scary. Many friends of mine have chosen not to do vaccination. I didn't know much, so my 8 years old son is vaccinated already, still I am thinking more of the risk of the bad effects than the risk of polio.
Polio does still exist, although polio cases have decreased by over 99% since 1988, from an estimated more than 350 000 cases to 416 reported cases in 2013. This reduction is the result of the global effort to eradicate the disease. Today, only 3 countries in the world have never stopped transmission of polio (Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan).

Polio is common here. We see it almost daily

I'm with you on this one, so far it's a proven issue in the US, those not getting their vaccinations are now spreading disease's and putting other children and those with weakened immune system's at risk.

Show them all the statistics and they're not listening ... Media brain washing has been powerful downer and many of these vaccination stories are debunked, people faking illness to get social assistance. Best thing we can do is vaccinate ourselves things are dirty here and people aren't paid well, standards aren't that high, my neighbors are always picking fun at those that sell stuff on the bikes, streets, they itch their hair, itch the crotch hind end, trouble is that's how bad it gets, not only hygiene but clean surface, clean shack...not. Major restaurant's have their own issue's I'm almost positive.

Don't forget your hepatitis, whopping cough combo, in the states I think it's a 3-1 now, I got my Typhoid shot because my wife got Typhoid here when we were visiting (still working US Navy) and she was hospitalized for two weeks.
