Ahhhh it's the swine flu!!!!


Seriously...I'm not nearly as panicked as the gov't and media WANT me to be.

Yes, it is a flu. Yes, it can be very serious. Yes, there have been deaths.

No, I'm not in a "priority group" for the vax and NO WE WON'T BE GETTING IT!!!!

I don't feel that this has been researched NEARLY enough. I read the leaflet that comes in the box with the vaccine and there is conflicting information on it. That doesn't make me trust ANYONE involved with it. I've been hearing all about the mercury in it and this other stuff that is not good for you as well as all the side effects that could happen including paralysis....YEAH, SIGN ME UP! *rolls eyes*

I don't know why so many people put their faith in this shit. The mass media hype...the way they are PUSHING this on everyone...the fact that 17 people have died from it and yet 3-4 thousand people die from the regular flu every year?

It SCREAMS at me that something is not right about it.

I ask everyone who is even THINKING about getting this shot to PLEASE research it. I really believe that it is dangerous and that the other shoe is about to drop about what could happen to you if you DO get it.

Over and out.

Hi. Yeah. I agree there's too much media hype. I disagree with you on everything else. I hae not had the shot. Will I get it? I don't know.

I do know that it is grown and manufactured just like the seasonal flu shot. The only reaon the H1N1 and the seasonal flu vaccine were not combined this year is because of the delay in manufacturing of H1N1.

In reality, the risk of a really nasty flu far outweighs the risk of the vaccine. Even if you don't care if you get the flu, I do. I care that you could easily spread it to others who may not tolerate it (infants, elderly, people with compromised immune systems, ets).

So in essence you are relying on those are are vaccinated to protect you and I am relying on you (in general) to protect others.

I really recommend you do research on this vaccine. It is quite obvious you haven't read anything about it, or you would know how it is made and how similar it is to the seasonal flu vac.

Finally, I want to point out there there is a meda-hype about H1N1 but there is a hype - equally as large -- about the vaccine being "unsafe".

Just sayin'
