Does Your Area have a Shortage of Flu and H1N1 Vaccines? (Vanity and information gathering)
10.31.09 | chickensoup

Posted on 10/31/2009 6:46:02 PM PDT by mlmr

I am just checking to see how the vaccines have been made available throughout the country. I have seen posts on the site saying that they are in short supply in some areas and other posters are saying there are no problems getting them.

I would like it if you could tell us your state and what is the status of the vaccine availablilty in the area.

I want to make sure that the vaccines have not been made a political football. That we havent yet turned into an African kleptocratcy.

...But my main thing was not specific toward you as I wanted to cite NaturalNews.com and Mercola.com as good websites to read about nutrition and self-health. I think the swine flu hysteria is an opportunity to show people how we have been lied to all these years, not that the economy and the talk of immaculate recovery isn’t doing the same thing.

I've left links to Mike Adams/Natural News on this site and one time received a comment stating NN is all "lies and garbage," amongst other diatribe. When I left a link in the comments section on FR to Mercola (FreeRepublic will not accept links to Mercola as a MAIN post ... they cite copyright infringement, however, I've written Mercola and hopefully that can get straightened out with FR), I was told by one poster that the good doctor was "nothing but a quack." Since my own health has gone from sleeping 12 hours a night to sleeping 7 or 8 via the knowledge of a string of holistic physicians, including Dr. Mercola, it would be difficult at best for me to refer to him as anything but very helpful. Eat a piece of organic fruit and toss out the danish, go for a short walk, even longer if possible -- take vitamin D to ward off the flu -- these are all tips you get on either site you have cited. And while Mike Adams isn't quite as formal as Dr. Mercola, he does have a keen sense of humor in addition to being ridiculously healthy (not to mention handsome) and isn't laughter included in the very best medicine of all? Myself, I've got a couple of conventional-wisdom doctors and a couple of holistic ones. It would be great if they could work better together.

Have you seen Dr. Mercola's new site dedicated to information on swine flu alone?

And here is a link for y'all to Mike Adams' site, Natural News.

Another informational site: National Vaccine Information Center.

Lincoln County, Oregon yearly flu shot program aborted due to no shipment.

We were 2 hrs over the mountain range in another County and word was Safeway in one town just got a shipment and so we popped in there no appt. needed got our yearly and a coupon for 10% off our grocery bill for getting the yearly flu shot.

Flu so far this year has not been the usual high rate.
It has been (el nino) really wonderful warm/dry weather too considering we live in the stormy PNW coast.

So the flu virus of choice may not be able to grow as it would in cold/wet weather.

That is a great thing. We have had two miserable years of snow/cold almost year round.

Yep inSan Jose. Our pediatrican just got their first shipment.

They had to prioritize who gets the vaccine, and my daughter with a brain injury and seizures is on the high priority list. Her twin sister with asthma did not make the first cut. Their brother is even lower.

My daughter with a brain injury is getting her vaccination tomorrow.

Been reading Hajj Pilgrims are jumping the line and getting the vaccine right after Health Care Workers in some countries. Wouldn't that be kick if we found out Obama's Health and Human Services was doing that here.

When preexisting condition is in the picture, what are they talking about End stage Cystic Fibrosis or viral induced asthma?

As of today, only 100 doses total of the H1N1 vaccine have been received in the Buffalo, NY area (Erie County).
Considering that over 31 million doses have been released in the US, this seems a bit odd to me.
If you do the math, 31,000 doses is enough for about 10% of the US population. There are at least one million people in Erie County, so 100 doses is enough for 0.01% of the people here.

Sorry for the typo! The 10%was calculated using 31 million doses, not 31,000.
