Posted on 09/19/2010 4:48:08 PM PDT by Babu
I was checking around online to find a convenient place nearby to get an annual flu shot, as is my habit, but so far, every place offering shots this year I have gone to is stating something along the lines of this: "The H1N1 component is included in this year's Seasonal Influenza Immunization."
They don't offer a "plain vanilla" flu shot, so to speak, that is, a regular flu shot, WITHOUT any H1N1. If I am unable to find a flu shot offered without H1N1 included, then I will be skipping it this year. My wife is a health care professional, and has the exact same opinion -- she won't take a flu shot that includes H1N1
I have done an online search, and so far, have been unable to find any information whatsoever about this. This surprises me, since we all know what a controversy H1N1 vaccinations were last year, and that many refused to take them, including some health care workers, somewhere in NY state, as I recall. I also recall that the all-knowing gubmint, with the assistance of their slavish lapdog Leftist media, tried to create a panic about H1N1 in 2009. But many refused to take the controversial vaccine, so they had a lot of H1N1 vaccine left over.
So I wonder what is going on here? Did the gubmint freeze all the vaccine and are they forcing the inclusion of that leftover H1N1 in all flu vaccines this year? Or perhaps it is brand new H1N1 vaccine, but I'm still suspicious that the Federal goobermint is involved. Either way, I want no part of H1N1, and neither does my wife.
Anyone have any knowledge about this topic to share?
neither have I.
Ain’t never had a flu shot. Drink Apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey everyday and I bet you’ll never get the flu.
Works for me.
H1N1 is so last year (and 1917), but, seriously...I don’t know.
I got a shot at my local gubmint school where I work and now I only want to vote Dem..:=)
The inadequately trained CVS pharmacist extracted only air from the vaccine bottle. Fortunately, I was watching and caught the screw up before getting an injection of air. Then I took the syringe and demonstrated how to properly draw fluid from a vial.
I was told that H1N1 virus wasn’t that new or different and many born people before 1957 are already immune.
The seasonal flu vaccine protects against three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will protect against 2009 H1N1, and two other influenza viruses (an H3N2 virus and an influenza B virus). The viruses in the vaccine change each year based on international surveillance and scientists’ estimations about which types and strains of viruses will circulate in a given year. About 2 weeks after vaccination, antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection develop in the body.
I got it last week and asked the same question. I was told it was a mix, including H1N1.
There is nothing wrong with the vaccine. I contracted H1N1 last year and wish I had received the vaccine but only got the standard flu shot. I’m not missing this year’s for anything.
Anyone who also received that 1976 vaccine are also immune...
Throw in some echinacea and Vitamin C and you're damn near immune to everything but gunfire.
That just pisses me off. I deliberately did NOT get a H1N1 shot last year because I have a history of over-reacting to meds, etc.
Guess I won't be getting any flu shot this year.
How is it that the gubbmint can force this kind of crap on us?
What is Apple Cider Vinegar supposed to do? I put Balsamic Vinegar on dam near everything except breakfast, will that protect me?
I got the h1n1 vaccine last year and so did my two toddlers and we had no bad effects. My two year old niece got the illness last year and almost died from 2 collapsed lungs and other complications from the illness.
“Seasonal Influenza (Flu)Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as vaccine is available this fall. While flu is unpredictable, its likely that 2009 H1N1 viruses and regular seasonal viruses will cause illness in the U.S. this flu season. The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1 virus that caused so much illness last season.”

“NDM-1 makes bacteria highly resistant to almost all antibiotics....”

Apparently, the tracking of H1N1 was able to be accomplished without RFID, through vaccine supply, data mining for treatment, electronic medical records, etc., etc., etc. Hitachi’s RFID powder is still a passive recorder, IIRC.
Creating combined vaccines is the most cost efficient way to mass vaccinate people.
Adverse reactions to medications are in a whole different ballpark than reactions to vaccines.
