    Due to a lack of vaccine, it should only go to those with an appropriate medical condition. Just because you want to play it safe is no reason to jeopardize someone else's life.

    And just what medical conditions would that be? Because I have had people close to me that were in extremly great health that have died from H1N1! One was a 12 year old little girl from the Church that I attend and the other was a fellow teacher at the High School that I teach at. The H1N1 is no respecter of persons at all, anyone is Susceptible to the virus.

    Don, I am sorry for your loss. The medical community is the organization which stated the swine flu vaccine should be given first to those with an underlying medical condition, not me. My 41 year old son is a diabetic and suffered a stroke last March. He is more acceptable to the swine flu than I am. He got his shot, I didn't. And I won't get one either.

    My wife and I are wanting to get the shot and have tried. We are having to wait our turn. We are placed behind the prisoners in our state. We both have underlying problems and are candidates for the shots.

    Well there you have it! Convicts get better treatment than law abiding citizens, this must be Obama's doings.

    Oh, Oh no you didn't just say that the convicts in prison are ahead you and the misses...what?!? OMG... what has this great nation come to? Before you know it, Chia Pets will will have voting rights. I am so sorry to hear that you are behind the prisoners, especially when you and the misses have underlying conditions that make you eligible for early vaccine. Errr... that boils my blood :angry:

    No I will not..I know all about the poison they put in those shots..For all the talk about mercury in fish and they tell us not to eat it,but they expect us every year to get flu shots with what in it??Mercury..http://drbenkim.com/flu-shot-ingredients-dangers.htm

    http://[youtubevid]gWfCnjnShnM[/youtubevid]

    My family is going through the flu now..We all went to the doc yesterday..When the doc said it was swine flu my wife started freakin out..The doc,our doc that we trust and know personally,said that swine flu is milder than the regular seasonal flu and that all the controversy surrounding it is hype..Big pharma stands to make billions on this vaccine while they scare people to death saying they have shortages..BS..If you ever studied basic economics you know that demand drives prices up..Its all about the money..Big pharm recruits polititians and give them big money to make sure the government goes along with the scare tactic and in the end everybody makes big money..The media plays right along..The media in this country is dead..They are no longer objective..They have there own agenga and that is to have the best ratings..

    I agree with this post.There is alot of stuff they put in those shots,dead cancer cells etc and the long term side effects have not even been researched.Its bad enough that our military gets experimented on now they are sending home permission slips to test this crap on our kids.

    My wife is on meds that lower her immune system, so yeah, we will probably get it when it becomes available for general distribution.

    Regarding mercury content..The mercury content of the shots that have it is about 19 micrograms, about the same as what you would find in 1 ounce of tuna. And it's ethyl mercury, which clears the system faster than the methyl mercury in fish. Ideally it would have zero mercury. Not all shots contain mercury, and they are working to phase it out of the rest. But for now, put it into perspective, and weigh the pros vs the cons for you family and circumstances.

    Price gouging - The companies that make the vaccines are under contract with the CDC for a set price, http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vfc/cdc-vac-price-list.htm Some price gouging may happen at a handful of private clinics, but the vast majority of shots are given out free or at a set price of $15-$30 that is generally not adjusted based upon seasonal supply and demand.

    I will take my chances as the last time I had a flu shot of any kind I spent 2 weeks in the hospital due to the flu shot shutting my kidneys down and screwing up my liver. NO THANKS!!!!!!!!

    In my own opinion,There is no need to get any Government sponsered vaccine. Also there is way too much hype on the handwashing/sanatizing. Folks God gave us our own antibodies for combatting these things and washing your hands every time you touch something or sneeze does more harm than good in my mind. we have GOOD bacteria as well as bad on our skin,Thus each time you use a sanitizer you risk killin the good stuff that protects ya. Just use common sense .:wink: By the way I havent and wont get any flue shots.or any other .
