how serious it was. three hours later she had to say good-bye to her forever. >> i miss her every day. it doesn't get any better. the things i hold on to is her first words were mama and her last words were mama. >> piper's mom didn't push for the flu shot because her daughter was scared about needles. she says her eyes are opened about the vaccine and hope does yours as well. we are talking about an extreme case here. >> the centers for disease control strongly recommends these people get the flu shot, but some people swear the shot gives them the flu or makes them sick. >> you are sounding off on our facebook page. check it out. 10news reporter jenny dean tracked down some people who commented and find out why they feel so strongly about the topic. >> this is brandon. he suffers from debilitating
a few months after he got a flu vaccination. that's why she strongly is against anyone in other family getting the shot. >> i believe in safety and efficacy. unfortunately, it's not safe and it's not effective. >> reporter: it's been several years since they have had a flu shot and rene says they have not gotten the flu. chelsea is just the opposite. she says she made sure her kids get the shot every year. >> i am big on vaccines. so i think that every child should around tons of other children and germs all the time. >> reporter: they have also never gotten the flu. and people suddenly aren't shy about this topic, especially on social media. rosemary writes on our 10news facebook page no one in my family gets the flu shot. it's poison injected into your system. get the flu shot and you get the flu. and then on the other side, nicole writes, neither i nor my four children have suffered ill effects from the flu and we

[ indescernible ]. >> there is a lot of concern over that. and what about the second misconception? the top three that you have?
that i know will say that they never get the flu. that may be true, but then you also have to consider that a lot of people do get the flu shot, so they don't transmit it to you. secondly, people discuss the fact that, you know, somebody else had it, they were sick, so they don't want to get. these things are not true. there is a lot of data out there proving that the flu shot works. there is 46,000 people that die in this country from the flu. maybe from the flu. like this young girl earlier. >> i worked with someone once whose wife got the flu shot and ended up paralyzed. would you say that's an isolated case? it's on a case-by-case basis? >> it's a rare case, yes. some people, if you have something where there is a neural or a neurological deficit, you don't want to get the flu shot. the flu shot is definitely not for everyone. but the majority of people,
are able to get the flu shot. >> let's talk about allergies. that's a big concern to parents and really people who may be allergic to a lot of different things. >> yes. mostly eggs are the biggest one when it comes to flu vaccination. this year there is a difference -- a different guideline now where they say that if you have allergy to eggs, you can still get the flu shot. >> very good to know. well, thank you for all of your help. we will have all of his answers page. that debate is going on and it's also at our facebook. chime in anytime. once again your comments could end up on the air. one of your choices for president making a stop right here in the all-important bay area. 10news political reporter mark rivera is live at tampa's curtis hixon park where hillary clinton just wrapped up a rally. this was all to get out the vote, but some other big
you know what, reg? the clinton campaign must be feeling pretty good. even though the polls are pretty tight in florida, they spent the first beginning of this speech mainly focusing on candidates, talking about local people running for congress like kathy castor and also congressman patrick murphy, who is running for u.s. senate against marco rubio. they are debating today. listen to the praise that secretary clinton gave to murphy. >> someone who is not here, i hope you will support, that is congressman patrick murphy, to send him to the united states senate. [ cheers and applause ] i think you'll be pleased because he is an independent voice. he is a problem solver. he believes in comprehensive immigration reform. he has stood with planned parenthood. >> reporter: yeah. in all of the donald trump rallies i have been to, i have never heard him stump for local
that. but something else clinton said to the crowd could have a lasting impact at tampa bay and florida. she made a promise about high- speed rail. >> we're going to get the economy working for everybody, not just people at the top with new jobs and infrastructure, that rail, that system, bob, that you want, we are going to get it because it would help you so much.

>> this adele performance happened in miami last night, and on stage she gave a shout out to clinton and endorsed her. now, we should mention trump is firing back at critics who complained about him attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony for his luxury hotel in d.c. today. trump says the hotel is a metaphor because he says the historic building on pennsylvania avenue has a foundation for success but needed to be revitalized much like the united >> my theme today is five words. under budget and ahead of schedule. that's what we do. >> crews spent the day repairing donald trump's star on the hollywood walk of fame. a man disguised as a construction worker destroyed it with a sledgehammer. he said he wanted to sell the gold star and give it to the women who claim trump sexually abused him.
heat between clinton and trump in florida. a poll puts the democrat slightly ahead 46% to 45%. right now a trial for a rapper accused of kicking a fan at a concert in lakeland is underway. as 10news first told you, it happened last year at rumors nightclub. this video is from the night in question. it went viral and led to more than a thousand people petitioning to ben gates from performing in florida. 10news reporter grady trimble. >> reporter: gates admits to pick canning her, but his lawyer, well known defense attorney jose baez, argues he was committing himself. >> she committed a battery by grabbing him. she grabbed his shorts. >> reporter: gates wouldn't answer our questions during the trial, but did take the stand. he says he worries about his safety while he is performing,
like rumors nightclub. the 19-year-old victim, miranda dixon, claims she wasn't trying to hurt him. >> show us with your hands how it was that you reached out to touch his shorts. just like that? >> reporter: dixon says she tugged on gates' shorts to get her attention after a friend asked her to. in the video you see her do that twice. after the second time, he kicks her. prosecutors say he went too far. >> he rears back and kicks miss dixon in that she falls back into miss redding. >> reporter: miranda dixon filed a separate civil case. the outcome of this trial doesn't affect that case in any way. in bartow, grady trimble, 10news wtsp. >> now, baez tried to use the stand your ground law in a previous hearing but the judge threw that out. >> the jury is deliberating as we speak. if the jury decides gates is guilty, he could face up to a year in jail.
jay renovations. >> just ahead how you could be on the hook even if you don't live in hillsborough county. weather-wise it's breezy today. tomorrow more of the same, but not a lot of rain out there. i will let you know when port tampa bay has now become florida's largest and most diversified. which helps explain why it is one of dana young's
their renovations. >> reporter: hillsborough county sales tax dollars are already paying for a quarter of raymond james stadium nine figure renovation. now they are asking for another $12 million from the state over the next 12 years. deep inside their 700-page application they make the case for how the economy would benefit. they suggest the renovations would help the team secure another super bowl. the improvements will also help the team charge you more for tickets. the bucs are essentially saying they should get state tax dollars because charging you concerts is good for the economy. about 15% for tickets starting next year. now, the team told the state it also expects the renovations to boost attendance in the future. so far this year crowds are down from about a year ago despite the renovations. getting the state dollars may be a long shot since the legislature has not been kind to pro teams in recent years. the bucs want a chance at those incentives, nonetheless, if that opportunity presents itself, we want to make sure
hillsborough county and the city of tampa and raymond james stadium has a seat at the table. >> the team tells me that the price hikes won't be across the board. club seats will see the biggest increases. >> what about economic benefits? who is benefiting? >> we will see a lot of construction jobs. but the bucs are ultimately the biggest beneficiary here. they say that the state and local benefits will be here, too. especially in a year where they have something like a super bowl. so far a lot of economists have and haven't seen it outside of the hotel industry. >> what about the new jobs things? >> construction jobs. the bucs say that there will be a total of seven full-time jobs created by this work. >> seven? >> one of which will be a maintenance job that the county taxpayers will have to pay for.
