Anyone getting swine flu vaccine?

Just wondering, seems like everyone I talk to is afraid to get it. Not enough research. Are you going to give it to your baby? Or yourself?

  • I'm still on the fence about it...

    I've read that researchers are guestimating that 90,00 people are going to die from swine flu and 50% of the population are going to catch it...kinda scary.

    but I haven't made the decision yet...

  • I don't think so!! I've said before and will say again my child is not a guinea pig to test new shots on.. They say "x" amount of people will die from the swine flu but the question is how many people are estimated to die from the vaccine? .. Truth be told the swine flu is not much different than the typical flu.

  • This is so hard. No, none of us are getting it. If you really do the research, you'll see some very unsavory aspects to this or any new vaccine. Health problems that could occur years down the line like Gulf War. Just read and make your own informed decision. Keep in mind the mfg company is making a fortune off of this. and will probably create the drug for the cancer it causes years from now and again make a killing!

  • No we won't be getting it.

  • No. I believe it is nothing but the media trying to scare everyone. Yes, I think it is dangerous and has and will kill people, but no more then the regular flu kills each year.
