Note: While most media is using "HULK HURT!" headlines to report on actor Lou Ferrigno's hospitalization as a result of a pneumonia vaccine injury, I decided to go with a straight forward headline, no mention of his most famous role. Why? Because vaccine injury is a real phenomenon that strikes and strikes down real people. Like the man, Lou Ferrigno, who happened to play The Hulk 30 years ago. Or my daughter Mia, who turns 24 years old today. When a child is injured, the media calls us parents morons looking to blame someone, something, anything. I am glad to see the reporting on this injury.
While fluid in the bicep is probably not life threatening, any American hospitalization costs significant time and money. And what better place to catch a disease, maybe even pneumonia. Makes me see.... green. (Yeah, I had to go there. ;) )
Even the Hulk isn't invincible.
"The Incredible Hulk" star Lou Ferrigno was hospitalized this week after he claimed a pneumonia vaccine was administered to him improperly.
"Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep," the 67-year-old former bodybuilder captioned a photo of himself with an IV in Providence St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., on Wednesday. Read more here.
