Do any of you plan on getting the H1N1 flu Vaccine?

I'm debating rather I should or not....

  • I'm not getting one. I was reading online where some women have been having side effects formit that are worse than actually getting the swine flu. I also read an arcticle where somewhere they accidently gave out the wrong vaccine to a bunch of women and there were bad side effects.
    I have never gotten any type of flu shot and I hae not ever gotten the flu either.
    I think it's a personal choice.

  • I already got it...and I'm just fine.

    I was just a little tired for a day or two - which is to be expected from any shot.

    ...just be sure to tell them you're pregnant; you can't get the nose spray.

  • Yes I got the H1N1 vaccine. My arm was sore near where I got it for about two days. The SHOT version has a NON-Live strain so you cannot get the flu from it. It's made exactly the same way as the seasonal flu shot, just has a different non-live strain in it, other than that it's 100% the same and the seasonal flu shot has been deemed safe for pregnant women and their unborn children for years!
