  • To all of the people saying swine flu is no worse than regular flu obviously haven't had it yet. It was horrible!!!!!!! Even after having I still wouldn't vax on it just yet because the shot has had complications. Its gotten so bad here that children in the schools are having to wear masks and several of them have had to close down because over 40% of the school was out sick with it.

  • i would say if you are breastfeeding and planning on getting the shot to get the shot for you and the baby will get the immunity thru the milk

  • Yes as soon as possible becasue my step-daughters brother was diagnosed with the Swine Flu and I don't want that around my family. She has been staying with us for several days until he is completely over it.

  • Nope, because it's not anymore dangerous than the regular seasonal flu, and I never get the vaccines for it. I've only had the flu once in my life, and if it's treated, it's not usually dangerous. That goes for the swine fle and the regular flu. They are both equally the same.

  • no, I feel the less shots the better, the swine flu is no more dangerous than the regular flu, so I wouldn't vaccinate myself or my son unless the law made us!
