  • Tamiflu Drug, Flu Vaccine Dangerous Side Effects - Flu Pandemic Shocking DiscoveryThe FDA has been reviewing reports of abnormal behavior and other brain effects in more than 1,800 children who had taken the flu medicine Tamiflu. The symptoms have included convulsions, delirium or delusions, and in Japan, five deaths have been reported in children under 16 as a result of neurological or psychiatric problems.There have also been nine deaths among older teens and adults, attributed to neuropsychiatric problems or brain infections. cont.

  • Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg MD -"Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak.” Swine Flu Vaccination Poses Serious Threat to Your Health. According to a recent Fox News poll, the majority of people in the US now believe the swine flu vaccine may be deadlier than the actual virus. Research published in the August 25, 2009  issue of the British Medical Journal reveals that more than half of doctors and nurses in public hospitals would also refuse the H1N1 vaccine, due to concerns about side effects and doubts about its efficacy. www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com

  • NO they will not and i will not either. I am very much for vaxing,but theres no way in hell i would get a shot that has been mass produced in two months. They say they have researched it ,but I dont see how being they just finished the shot. I have heard reports of neurlogical problems from some people it has been tested on also. You dont know what that shot will do. In the seventies they had a wine flu shot that killed more than the swine flu did. I have had many nurses tell me not to get it.

  • Most reports on people who have actually contracted swine flu are saying that they recover just fine when taken care of properly (rest, hydration, etc.). I don't see any reason to get the vax. DS is home today with flu like symptoms (although they seem very mild so far). I have seen him sick with a virus that knocked him down way worse than this one so far.


    I also have a neighbor that is a Pediatrician that works in the neonatal ward at a big hospital here and she isn't getting the swine flu vax for herself or her son, saying that what they have seen is very much like the seasonal flu (milder even) and there is no need for a vax, just good mindful hygiene.

  • Nope. No way in hell is any one of us getting the swine flu vax. Waste of money, waste of time.

  • SO far, I have yet to find anything numbers or information on pediatric studies for this vaccine. They say that they are "still testing".....really? Then why are we giving it if we don't know anything yet???

    That doesn't make sense. They are not going to use my kids or myself to try out this vaccine. No way. I read that they have tested it on "hundreds" of adults so far.....well, our government has ordered some 250 million vaccines-that is a drop in the bucket for me! Hundreds compared to millions????

    We won't be getting it.

  • I vax, but don't normally get flu shots for our family. I won't be getting them this year either.

  • I'm not getting any flu shots, never did and won't start now. This swine flu even though there have been some deaths in people with compromised health, is a mild flu. yes teh flu can kill, any flu can kill but if you or your child are healthy the odds are it will be a few days of misery for both of you and then they will have direct immunity. Take proper precautions and there is a good chance your daughter won't get it anyway.
