  • It is too new! They have put that vaccine out so quickly. It makes you wonder how they could really test it and people's reactions to it. So, we won't be getting it in our family.

  • Once our doctor offers it, my kids will get it.

  • No one knows if it is safe because it is still being tested and I actually just saw something about the UK linking it to Guillian Barr Syndrome in the little bit of testing that has been done so far. There is no way they are using my kids as guinea pigs for this vaccine so we will not be getting it in our house.

  • First, do your own research, do not listen to the opinions of a bunch of strangers.

    If we choose to get it, we will have our doctor order preservative free single dose; this year's flu vaccine has mercury/thimerisol

  • during the last swine flu pandemic more ppl died of the vaccine so no we won't. I'm reading jenny McCarthy's book on why there is so much autism and it's linked to what they put in vaccines. I'm not about to have a vaccine and won't encourage my kids to get them for the grandkids.

  • No one in my house will be getting this one. Read this article. This shot is going to contain Squalene as an adjuvant. When taken orally it is actually quite beneficial. When injected into the bloodstream it is very bad.

    Read this article and do some more research on this one folks. I personally believe it is going to be a disaster for those who accept it. All the parties involved have already made themselves immune to any liability.

    I wonder why.
