    For me it's like this. This vaccine has been rushed into production , it will have life threatening side effects in a minority of people. Swine flu, seems to be slightly milder form of regular flu in the vast vast majority of people who catch it, only one person has died who apparently has no underlying health problems, the rest already have serious illness. And even then he is still be examined as we speak for anything.

    Now most people like myself will not be a priority for the vaccination anyways being young and fit which is a good thing because others will get it first and we can see how they react to it. might have it, it really depends on the course of the disease, howmany healthy people die basically. But even then , I have had flu before, it isn't nice but if I was in the first batch of people to have this vaccination I would not have it.

    And I also have serious reservations about taking 'tamiflu' which apparently can make some people sicker.You exchange the swine flu symptoms for nausea and vomitting apparently. I might just shut myself away and brave it out, if I get it.

    1. It's not going to have any more side effects than the current seasonal 'flu vaccine, you have to understand that this is not a new product, just an adaptation of the existing one.

    2. Good, you shouldn't take Tamiflu or Relenza unless you have complicating factors like asthma, diabetes etc.

    Will you read the ******* thread!

    It is the same as the regular seasonal 'flu vaccine that gets updated and dished out every single year, it is not a NEW product.


    EDIT: I was half asleep when I typed that, so I missed another crucial point: WTF are you on about MMR for?

    :yep: that too

    Something to do with an over reactive immune response to the virus, can't remember what its called now, or if its even the main cause if death from it.

    This is what I was told by my biology teacher anyway

    Cytokine storm, it's why young, fit and healthy people often die from it.

    Of course he doesn't, didn't stop any of the other amateur immunologists through does it.
    Note: (extra large for effect)



    means I am a "she"



    Also to the others who tried to burn me to the ground, I said I maybe wrong, I admitted as much, I was just acting on what my aunt (a nurse) had told me, and someone else made a similar comment to me and didn't get pulled up on it. So :grr:

    So are the millions who have the seasonal flu vaccine every year around the world morons to?

    Because this is exactly the same thing, but instead is a vaccine produced to combat H1N1 and not the seasonal flu that is doing the rounds.

    Personally I don't think I desperately need it, I don't have the seasonal flu vaccine as I'm not an 'at risk' group. But if it's offered I won't refuse.

    I can confirm that I am not being serious. The ignorance of the common person, however, is serious.
