  • I had it last week. I got a little head ache a few hours later and a sore throat. My other 4 kids got it also. My 7 year old complained of a sore throat and a little bit of couching. I bought her some over the counter childrent tylenol for sore throat and cough and she is ok. I would recommend it. The kids and I are fine.

  • H1N1 Flu vax Package Insert Info. from Novartis: Oct. 21,
    "Specific levels of...antibody post- (after) vaccination with inactivated influenza virus vaccine have NOT been correlated with protection from influenza illness. In some human studies, antibody titer of ≥1:40 have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects. "

    ref: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM112904.pdf

    (++++ What this says, in PLAIN language, is that developing an H1N1 antibody after getting an H1N1 vaccination has NO correlation with not getting sick. And that a sizable antibody level (i.e. 1:40 or greater) only protects UP TO 50% of people from getting the flu.-Dr.S. Tenpenny.) http://drtenpenny.com/default.aspx

  • I got it (and I'm 36 weeks pregnant) and I just felt kind of icky for a day...body aches, tired, etc. but I'm 36 weeks pregnant, so it could have been that too. My 18 mo. old daughter got it too and she was cranky for a few days but she also got the regular flu shot and her 18 mo. vaccinations so it is hard to say what exactly caused the crankiness.

  • i was already sick when i got the shot with a sore throat, chest congestion, a cough, runny nose during the day and stuff at night, body aches, headache, and had a small fever.... i got the shot almost a week ago and none of my symptoms have gone away just got worse.... so i went to the doctor and they told me they should have never given me the flu or H1N1 shot b/c i was already sick with something and it will just prolong my sickness.... i've been sick with the same symptoms for almost 2 weeks and doctors wont give me anything b/c i'll be 36 weeks on Tuesday...this has been the worse 2 weeks...i was told i could be sick for another 1-2 weeks....i wish i would have never got the shots until i was better but everyone told me to go get it b/c of the fear of me getting swine flu right before delivery.... my 17 month will get them on the 24th if she is healthy with her 18 month old shots =/
