    Default H1N1, would you take the vaccine??

    Would you take the H1N1 vaccine??
    Personally, I don't as the vaccine itself is not safe. Normally, it would take 2-3 years to develope a good vaccine. This time, they only take 2-3 months.

    For all intents and purposes it's no different from regular flu. So I'm with Flamer. Go immunity.

    Pemberly, do you mind sharing the kind of symptoms you've got for the swine flu you've caught?

    I'm quite worried about a friend of mine who had a bad throat for more than a week (probably more than 2 weeks), mild cold, slight cough and has been feeling easily tired.
    What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!

    I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?

    i had coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and fatigue. maybe a slight fever. i was fine after about 4 days. ppl at work had it a little worse than me. same thing, plus fever for a few days along with chest pains and body aches. they were sick about 6 days each.

    i took no medication, one person took some tylenol, i believe.

    we're all back to work. T_T

    i had symptoms from both your examples. the first thing i had was a sore throat, and then it got worse. maybe i have some other kind of new flu! it's november, so maybe it's turkey flu!!

    What are you talking about, America has done virtually nothing about the flu for months, while a country like China took it seriously and even banned some foreign airplanes from entering the country.

    I had lab confirmed H1N1 and quarantined for 6 days. Fun experience and that saves me from being jabbed by a needle.

    Thanks for sharing... I am guessing it varies from person to person. Some people have even died from it while others are in the hospital fighting for their lives. However, for the most part, many people are fine and make a full recovery. But I have read news reports about how it is not possible nor is it necessary to vaccinate everyone with the H1N1 virus because it is not as serious as people make it out to be. My family is sooo paranoid that they want me to get vaccinated for it, not go out and hang out with what they call "sick" people since I currently don't have health insurance. Geez, they are way to paranoid...
    Respect other people's opinions and views. If we learn how to do that than all of these fights and arguments will not occur.

    Australia (swine flu center of the world) did nothing and nobody died. It's just a flu like any other flu.

    We did laugh at the foreigners (often stupid rich & pampered Asians) with face masks entering the country though.

    Don't you get any coverage from the government? We don't pay for going to a doctor when needed but we have to pay for medication.

    Some, probably prefer to not take the influenza lightly when they have come across a good number of death news or something like this: http://www.reuters.com/article/healt...59E5D220091015

    No, don't be mistaken though. I only care about wearing a face-mask when I do springcleaning of my house.

    I've learned to trust Western media as much as I trusted the communist one in my motherland.

    When swine flu was in the news here, there were many death reports. Turned out that in all of those cases, the cause of death was something else entirely, but the fair & balanced democratic media people couldn't help making up bullsh!t themselves.

    Remember bird flu? That was meant to wipe off a large chunk of the Asia Pacific population! I think it killed fewer people than a regular flu.

    They did make the media and the pharmaceutical companies richer though.

    I'm considering taking the vaccine once it's available in my country. I do not want to be accused of passing A(H1N1) on to someone's precious little monster, like most doting parents are wont to do.

    I think, for your line of work (especially in your country), you have no choice. 'Cos once you catch the influenza *touch wood*, it becomes the whole house's (school) business.

    have any of you guys seen the video of girl who got the swine flu vaccine and developed some kind of nerve disease? she used to be a cheerleader, but now she can't talk or sit without shaking. but if she runs, she can speak fine. and she can only go upstairs, backwards. O_o so strange.

    I saw the video and it's really sad. I feel for the poor girl.

    Although according to experts this rare side effect happens in just one in a million.
