No Way!!!! Both my children got h1n1 and it was way milder than the regular flu. My son was prescribed tamaflu and did great, felt better within 3 days...my daughter wasn't prescribed anything and her symptoms were milder than my sons. Here's a little interesting thing I put together about the vaccine. Makes ya wonder!



Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) ~ is a RARE disease in which the body damages its own nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. It is not fully understood WHY some people develop GBS, but it is BELIEVED that stimulation of the body’s immune system may play a role in its development.

Squalene ~ is a natural and vital part of the synthesis of cholesterol, steroid hormones, and vitamin D in the human body found in the brain and spinal cord.

(uh huh)

**However, When Squalene Aduvent is injected into the body, it causes your immune system to go into overdrive and destroy this foreign substance Plus, the natural occurring squalene located in your brain and spine

(See a resemblance?)


The purpose of an immune adjuvant added to a vaccine is to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to the vaccination. Adjuvants cause your immune system to overreact to the introduction of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.

Adjuvants are supposed to get the job done faster (but certainly not more safely), which reduces the amount of vaccine required per dose, and the number of doses given per individual.

Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns. Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of government and the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions from their vaccines.

The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines. (The squalene adjuvant additive is illegal in the U.S. However, If the President of the U.S. declares a state of emergency which he did Oct. 25, 2009..... the use if illegal products that have not been proven for safety are allowed to be used.

(Millions? Wow....Lucky them!!!! At who's expense...I wonder?....... Hmm?)

In 1976 there was a mass campaign hysteria about the swine flu....Vaccines were distributed. The vaccination program was STOPPED in December after 532 proved cases of paralysis from Guillain-Barré syndrome were linked to the vaccine and 25 people died........The hysteria had been a false alarm, and more people died of the vaccine than of the disease. The risk of getting Guillain-Barré from the vaccine was approximately 1 in 100,000.

(Was squalene used? A test.. maybe? Put it in a quarter of the lots and the rest without it?)

And here we go again!!!! A new altered squalene adjuvant additive to test...maybe? If all goes smoothly with a little less finger pointing and probs at the public's expense. They can mass produce this vaccine, make millions of dollars, and worry about the short and long term effects later. What a plan! And put out it every year as they do the regular flu shot.

**If something does happen due to the vaccine...there is nothing you can do about it. No one can be held responsible.**

On The H1N1 Vaccine packaging under WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

* If Guillain-Barré syndrome has occurred within 6 weeks of receipt of prior influenza vaccine, the decision to give Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.

But, yet....they deny GBS has anything to do with vaccines....ITS on the Package!

no...i've heard of too many kids getting much sicker with the shot...many complications we aren't told about

I am also on the fence. We all got the regular seasonal flu shot this week. My 9 year old now has what I hope is a cold. I am a Type 1 Insulin dependent Diabetic and I am going to get the shot when it becomes available in my area. It is important for my son to get it also. I hate to see him sick and we have enough of the normal illnesses, so why not prevent one?

Yes. I am all for the H1N1 shot. The media has nothing to do with it.
No one wants our money for a simple shot.
Some clinics have it for free.
If it makes you able to breathe for a few more years, and it makes your children immune to it for their entire lives, and for their childrens lives, it is worth it. The anti bodies will save YOUR future nursing home workers and we need them when we are too old to have our own homes!

No, it is way too new and the demand is so high something just doesn't feel right to me. With the drug company trying to produce so many doses in so little time something is bound to go wrong somewhere.

i got my kids regular flu shots, and I have gotten my two year old the H1N1 shot, when it becomes available to my 5 year old he will also get it. I don't like to see my kids sick and I will prevent it if possible. I think that this new h1n1 shot is just as safe as the regular flu shot, my doctor would not have called me personally and recommened i get it for my son if he didn't think it was necassary. By the way they didn't get any money out of me for it, they did it for FREE

i read the pamphlet the school sent home, it is very brief, no list of ingredients, my hub read on net that the preservative is formaldahide. I have a brand new baby too, so i was gonna do it, but when he was week old my 7 yr got real sick and we had to divide our house in half andwe succeeded, noone else got sick, the doc diagnosed her with type a influenza did not test for h1n1, but it took near 3wks to recover, i think all flu strains this year are equally horrifying, i seriously don't know a household not affected. I am really torn on my decision, because of the babe, but i am not one for over vaccinating, i am leaning away from it as well as regular flu shots too. Just striving to keep our immune systems healthy and remaining in isolation with the baby at home

We have been debating this topic at work also. I was leaning toward getting the shot for the kids, but I want to get more info on the safety of this shot or spray and find out about any side effects.

Malik - posted on 10/28/2009




No, I am not going to let my daughter get the shot only because I personally think that this is just another way for them to make money. Think about it how do you know that the shot is safe?

Melissa - posted on 10/28/2009




I am not giving my kids the H1N1 shot. I personally don't believe that the Swine flu is any worse than the regular seasonal flu and I don't get that shot either. I think the media has really gone overboard with the whole thing and has gotten people all in a panic. I agree that people have died from the H1N1 but thousands die from the regular flu as well. The only difference is that when someone dies from the regular flu they don't splash it all over the news. Don't get me wrong, it's horrible when someone dies but I think they are causing wide-spread panic for nothing.
