There's a woman on the Today show right now talking about how important it is for pregnant women to get the H1N1 vaccine. The interviewer asks her flat out - is it safe? She says, "well, the data isn't all in yet." Then goes on to say historically flu vaccines are "usually pretty safe" but they won't know for sure on this one for months. She then goes on to say that this not-fully-tested vaccine that they don't know what potential side-effects it could have on mother or baby is safer than if women get the flu. The UNKNOWN is safer? Injecting an untested vaccine into an entire generation of unborn babies is safer than a flu that they don't even know for sure the vaccine will work against?

I don't know how they do it. Isn't this the same network that had Edy Falco on because of her new roll as a nurse and then seriously asked her professional opinion on the Health Care reform bill? And equally ask shocking, she didn't open with "Well, as an ACTRESS, I feel that blah, blah, blah".
Good times with network morning shows. Dare I ask where all of the common sense shirked off to?

I recently took my DS in for a sick visit (they checked on a cough) and they offered the regular flu vax, so we got that for him. I asked her if they were doing the H1N1 vax yet and she said they wouldn't have them in until the middle of Oct. and I said that I have been hearing negative things about it and that I wasn't sure how I felt about it. She said she wasn't sure how she felt about it either, but she didn't make any comments about bringing him back for the swine vax. Not going to do it. DD won't get it either.
