    Hell, nurses here are fighting against being test subjects by force for it.

    I wasn't until we had a huge break out in this region and now my son has the flu and most of the symptoms. We go to the doctor at 1pm today.

    We have another staff member who may be infected. So far that's three from our unit alone. My worry is bringing it home to my daughter and 4 year old grandson. They are in the high-risk groups (well, I am too... but I'm more concerned about them). Then again, she works in a daycare and he attends the same school, so I suppose they could bring it home to me lol.

    :eusa_eh:

    That's odd. The nurses at our hospital are not fighting against it; in fact, the concern is the hospital isn't going to have enough vaccinations for all direct-care employees.

    Don't take it.

    It was rushed through a mock/pseudo clinical trial, it has ingredients that have decimated the health of our gulf war soldiers as a result of untested anthrax vaccines, most Canadian provinces have put a hold on administering the vaccines because studyies are showing that you're twice as likely to contract the flu AFTER being vaccinated, and there are even records that show some of the ingredients are used in drugs to cause sterility in large mammals.

    Additionally, more people died of swine flu shots in the 1976 media/government created panic than died of actual swine flu. CDC officials who were interviewed after the 1976 fiasco went on record stating that they KNEW the vaccines were harmful to people. Today, we have CNN and FOX telling us to get our shots because the government is concerned for us.

    Do you really believe that?

    he will be two in november, so he is part of the high risk group. I wasn't too worried until he developed a rash on his bottom last night and this morning he has alittle on his face. Plus I guess the biggest sign is they seem like they are better which he did yesterday and then last night he got his fever back and developed the rash.

    I am not going to get the shot though, I am healthy and if my son has it I have already been exposed. :)
