I was reading through some Swine flu debates on this site and came across this post : "Initially, the government suggested dropping the seasonal vaccine, but late yesterday it announced a compromise: It would put off the seasonal flu vaccinations until January. One of the reasons cited for staggering the two campaigns is that those who have been vaccinated in the past against the seasonal flu appeared to be more susceptible to H1N1. Therefore, it makes more sense to give the H1N1 shot first."
NOt sure where this is from, but if it is true, why would this be true? Why would the regular flu shot make a person more likely to catch the H1N1 flu? To be honest this is all sounding so so confusing and I cannot make up my mind , get the shot, don't, just me, or just my 7 month old....
And im also not really able to make a decision bc there are barely any shots in my area to be given...and I want the mercury free kind...
