    Much as I'd love to be vaccinated against everything ever, I really don't think swine flu is high on my priority list.

    No; I don't think it's worth having a needle stuck into me for.

    Exactly the way I feel.
    Although, if I was given the choice (and it was free), I'd rather get it than not - just to be safe.

    To be honest, after watching Torchwood last week I'm slightly wary of any vaccines and innoculations :p:

    But I don't see it as a big enough threat to warrant getting it - yet.

    After it had been confirmed it worked, yes. Why not?

    lol! I was going to say the same thing.

    Needles make me gag. I avoid them like the plague but i suppose if swine flu became worse...much, much worse then i most likely would. Anywho I didn't think a vaccine would be available til the end of the year?

    If it was free, sure.

    I don't mind needles, and better safe than sorry?

    (I know people with swine flu so it's not really an 'out there' threat)

    Definitely. I suffer from Hayfever AND asthma badly, which apparently make my chances of dying from swine flu much higher :| haha, the vaccine can't come quick enough!

    Six hundred, out of a hundred thousand - mostly in the USA, Mexico and Argentina? I'm not horrendously scared.

    Yep, why not, it's worth having a very mild cold (a well known effect of the flu vaccine) to prevent me from getting the flu. Plus, as hopefully Ill be working in the NHS next year, Id much rather have the protection.
