  • Dengue vaccine or Not!

    I was infected with Dengue Fever in 1957 in Puerto Rico. I remember my headaches, which by the way I think caused my lifelong migraines. I got very sick and stayed out of commission for about one week. MI am 73 and I remember how sick everybody was. My family recovered but for some reason many in my town died, just like with Polio. Many people avoided the Polio vaccine and suffered life long spinal cord injuries, like not be able to walk without crutches, weird looking spinal cord like if you were affected with SCOLIOSIS, distorted looking body, etc. So, if people are willing to die and not take the vaccines isolate these people from the general public.
