I was curious what other Mom's feelings were on the H1N1 vaccine. Do you plan on getting it for your child? I am pregnant and have 2 other children and am debating whether or not to go ahead with it when it becomes available.

My children are teens.I never felt the flu vaccine was necessary but felt this vaccine was necessary. I think you should ask your dr and see if he feels it is a good idea.Good luck.

i would never put that into my child. Most vaccines need an 18 month testing period, this one is only 4 months! And now we are going to TEST it on our kids? It contains formeldahyde, animal by-products, mercury and other potentially dangerous toxins. Many people got Gillian Bar syndrome from the last Swine Flue vaccine, and the pharmaceutical companies were not liable at ALL! Please check out http://purecapitalhealth.com/ for information on ways to improve your/and your childs immune system the natural way. Nutriferon is clinically proven to kill the flu virus! Also, taking a probiotic (Optiflora) and a multi-vitamin is Key! Good luck to you!

I agree we should all look at reliable web sites on this.I know alot ppl whos kids have gotten the mist with no side effects.I think you should do what feels right.It is your child and you know it right for them,no one else.

There has been plenty of testing done on the vaccine. The only difference between this and the seasonal flu vaccine is the STRAIN of flu. The process by which it is made is exactly the same.
There is NO formaldehyde, NO animal by-products, and there is more mercury in a can of tuna then there is in the vaccine.
There is also NO comparison between this H1N1 [swine flu] and 1976.
Please do your research on reputable websites such as your government website or state/provinces health website. Ask your doctor. Ask the public health nurse.
Please educate yourself before filling peoples heads with lies.

And just an F.Y.I....
86 kids have died in the Untied States since OCTOBER 10TH from H1N1... The normal amount for a FULL flu season is only 40 to 50... So don't tell me it is like the seasonal flu because it isn't... They suspect that 2 billion people will be infected by the end of next year.
