  • I think that if that is how you feel, then don't get the vaccine.

  • I will absolutely NOT put that stuff in my body nor my kids, including the seasonal flu shot. Research both of them and you will agree.

  • Let's put it this way....both of my boys have Autism, and I have and will continue to vax on schedule. They have, and will continue to receive the annual regular flu shot (mist), as I do not blame vaccines for their Autism--if anything, they have IMPROVED DRAMATICALLY as they've gotten older (now 7 & 5), even WITH additional courses of vaccines since their official diagnosis, and I will NOT be subjecting them to the Swine Flu vaccine.

    Why? Because they are otherwise perfectly healthy. They do not have compromised immune systems. We reinforce good hygiene habits/routines, and as it is they never get sick. So we'll be watchful, but aren't worried.

    In fact I am a special education teacher and work in a school that has had 15 confirmed cases of Swine Flu, and I'm still not worried.
