  • of course, to many people have died from it and it is spreading really quickly, I live in a school district that has 12 schools and all the schools have or had multiple cases of it. That's pretty scarry to me.

  • thats a big resounding NO! my daughter has already had H1N1 and she got over it just fine and the rest of us in the house didnt get it. Id rather my family work through a virus than inject them with something that could cause worse problems.

  • no. we have no underlying health issues. I have never gotten a flu shot for my kids (15, 13, 10) and they have never had the flu.

  • No the shots have not been tested long enough, they made this and did it in a hurry, so 6 months from now we will see how sick people get from the shot. I mean do ya see how many lawsuits are out there for meds that were suppose to be safe....

  • I agree the shot has not been around long enough yet. My pregnant friend and all her kids just had it and everyone was over it in like a week.

  • That's a big fat NO for me! I don't trust it, there could be many neurological things that can happen from it! Plus the government just sugar coats EVERYTHING!! I live in a district that schools have been closing around us like crazy! Still haven't gotten it, this has been in our area for months now.. just spreading like wild fire. If it's going to happen we will get it, get sick, and be done.
