child dies after swine flu vaccination

[deleted account] ( 11 moms have responded )

The headline hit us yesterday, as well as news of a number of others being seriously ill from it.

The vaccination is not widespread here, no pressure is being put on people or parents to vaccinate, and so only a small number have.

That seems to make a large percentage with serious - or fatal - side effects.

If anyone is still questioning about vaccinating, think about it some more.

(Just my own opinion though).

OK - and other reasons why I'm sticking to the 'no thank you' decision:

A family we know just was down with swine flu. How? The father got the vaccination because he travels a lot - reacted to it - and they all came down.

Another family I know, same scenario for father. He then spent the next 4 days in bed with a fever of 40°C.

A Kindergarten in a nearby town talked about recommending the shot to the parents (some friends of ours again). One child had the shot, came to kindergarten, got sick, and he plus 4 other kids were then down with swine flu.

Also ... what about the Baxter fiasco?

We are currently 'doing' swine flu now. My daughter will no longer be contagious - for certain - tomorrow evening. I'm glad we opted not to get the vaccines, not just for all the horror stories we've had here, but also so that we know for the future: had it, done it, immune to it.
Now mom and dad just need to sit tight for a few more days to find out if we got it too (though I'm finally recovering from a simultaneous severe case of bronchitis and my DH from a bad, cold - so we assume that if we haven't fallen sick with it by now, we'll be fine).

I have 5 daughters in a school system where H1N1 was confirmed. We did not get the vaccine. I know that the vaccine itself doesn't make you sick, however I didn't see the point in getting a vaccine that takes two weeks to be effective when the kids had already been exposed. My girls got a severe cold and according to the test did not get the flu. Sickness is settling down in our area and so hopefully the next round won't be as severe. But my sister did get the vaccination for her son and a small school system that had vaccination encouraged in it had over 200 kids out sick the week that they offered it. So I really don't know what to think about the vaccination for this but I am satisfied with our decision not to vaccinate.

I didn't know that at all, all four of my kids had the H1N1 vaccine, and so did I... nothing happened to any of us. I pray no one else dies from the flue or vaccine

It was national news here in Germany at the beginning of the week.

When you get your child the vaccination it is important to remind your doctor, or tell the doctor if different family doctor if your child is diabetic, or asthmatic. They are giving some children a nasel spray, in the nasal spray they are putting a live virus in your child. As where in the shot it is a dead virus. I know this because I have 2 children who have sevear asthma, so they are not able to get the nasal spray it puts them at high risk. Talk to your Doctors about it, and always be sure you go over all your options. There is a risk at times either way, getting it, and not getting it.

My son and I had swine flu. We will not be getting the vaccination. If we did not alredy had it, I would get the injection and not the one inhale in the nose. The one you use in the nose is the live virus and the injection is the dead version.

This is so sad. Our town of 5000 has lost two young people to H1N1. We haven't had anyone in our town get sick from the vaccine. The vaccine is very limited here as well so perhaps the population being vaccinated just isn't big enough to have anyone getting sick yet. With that said, all three of my children and my husband will be vaccinated next week. I do not qualify to get one of the vaccinations, but if I did, I'd be getting one.
