  • I've been telling everyone that asks me that im not giving my two yr old son the vaccine because its to new and too risky in my opinion.

    so i see why they wouldn't give their children it but its very hypocritical for them to give out press releases that every child should get it yet not put their own children through the same thing.

  • If you want to promote an idea or a cause then do it with facts, not half truths or lies. Robert Gibbs didn't say that the Obama girls were not ever receiving the vaccine. He said that they hadn't received it "yet" on October 8th, because at that time it wasn't available to them. Which was true because the vaccine was only available in limited quantity at that point . Most places don't even have it now. The hospitals and clinics where I live have no idea when they are getting the vaccine or how much they will get, so there's a chance that even here only people with immunodeficiency issues will receive it. For a transcript of Robert Gibb's original comments regarding the Obama girl's H1N1 vaccine go here:

  • Not my concern. His kids, his choice. My kids, my choice. It doesn't matter to me if his kids get vaxed. As for him telling others to get the vax, well, I don't know what to say about that. Could be that we spent a stupid crazy amount of money to make these vaccinations and they don't want them going to waste. Just seems a little risky to me is all. Isn't there an ungodly amount of mercury in them? IDK, I have a Ped. down the street and she isn't getting it and neither is her kid. Says she isn't comfortable with how quickly it was made and the fact that they don't know what the negative effects could be so soon.

  • Isn't it the choice of the parents?

  • What a surprise. In Germany there are two seperate vaccines, one for military and higher-ups, one for the common folk. Yep.
