WebMD is an excellent source. Each person needs to make up their own mind but I for one will take the shot.

My wife is a clinical pharmacist and is getting both the regular flu shot and H1N1.

I just got my regular flu shot 10 minutes ago.

They are both safe.

I made the decision, not to take the shot....................now it is irrelevant, I just had H1N1.

My husband and I are passing on both.

I know this doesn't apply to today's flus or flu vaccines, but about 8 years ago I got the seasonal flu shot. A few days or a week later, I came down with the worst flu of my life... I could barely get out of bed for days. I have no idea if if I "caught the flu" from the flu shot or if the vaccine just didn't do the trick...

Under normal circumstances, I would not be concerned and I would get the vaccination without worry.

However, I trust absolutely NOTHING that comes from the Obama administration, period.

Their incompetence and total lack of integrity has set new records...... all bad.

Although in a much different context,Reagan once said, “Trust, but verify”.

With Obama and his tribe, I say, “Trust absolutely nothing from that bastard”.

Same here. Instead, I’m boosting my immune system to help prevent flu or swine flu, or anything else that comes along. I don’t remember the last time I was sick.

Agree too... although I have this caveat:

If it can be shown that there is more vaccine going to liberals and commie-enabling -12bama voters, then I'll consider getting in line.

I asked my physician why the FDA did not approve the swine flu vaccine. He told me they did approve it. I checked. He was right. It was approved after they waived all of the qualification testing.
This is as hoaky as it gets. Next question: Why were the qual tests waived?

It takes up to two weeks to develop effective immumity after a flu shot (PDF from CDC). If you got the flu within a week of getting the shot, you definitely got it the old fashioned way. The vaccination just hadn't taken root yet. Also possible you caught a strain that wasn't on that year's seasonal dance card. You can't really get the flu from a flu shot, though, since it doesn't contain viruses. Just little bits and pieces of them.

No I don't think Mike is drinking Koolaid. Some decisions are made using research and information and others are made on faith and even others on knee jerk reactions. Criticizing decisions not in agreement with your philosophy is best using logic and truth not with schoolyard taunts.

Grow up.

Thanks for that info in #14. My memory is hazy whether it took days, a week or two weeks or more between my flu shot and when I actually came down with flu symptoms. I realize I could have caught it the old fashioned way...

So far, I'm going to take my chances with this year's seasonal flu and H1N1. I don't plan to get either vaccine...

You mean like his claim that both are safe? The H1N1 that was supposedly tested via a mock vaccine and some that will be made in china, I grew up along time ago, that’s why I no longer drink koolaid ...

The testing will be done on the general population, that’s all.
