Well, my great Aunt just told me that Obama wasn't going to let the old people get this shot. She says he is flying stealth bombers above the atmosphere dropping swine flu viruses into the air, hoping it will kill all the old people because they can't get the shot.

I should call my older relatives and give them the heads up.

Apparently, these fears are running rampant among th elderly already. She said her brother told her that story and he lives far away. A lot of old people believe this crap. There is only one old person I know who thinks it's stupid. Lots of them are falling for it.

Also, the sample size is a wee bit small.

Just curious, what sort of permanent scar are you referring to? Due to a vaccine?
With polio, my understanding is the scar is a result of two things 1) as a quick and easy way to ID those who had been vaccinated, essential in their quest to eliminate the disease. In developing nations, paperwork just wasnt going to cut it. I was also told that in order to make the vaccine more effective, the skin had to be broken. I would have to do some research to get exact reasons why.

In any case, I'm sorry to hear of your bad experiences.

Ive often wondered abotu going-away-jabs, are you expected to have those all at once or over the course of a year?
Those reactions would just be your immune system getting pissed off. Since it's only a subunit vaccine, it can't actually make you ill, like some vaccines with live attenuated virus can. I would hypothesize your different reactions would be do to the level of immunity you had built up, the second reaction was more localized and faster to deal with it. (which is the purpose of the multiple shots, to build up acquired immunity - ie, a memory of that virus)

sounds a bit "fishy" to me. maybe i should report it to the whitehouse.
I don't think anyone should be scared shitless of swine flu. That's just silly. Sadly, the media has not helped matters at all.
I believe they are pushing the vaccine in hopes of containing the strain, and letting it die out. The opposite being letting it spread around like colds in a kindergarten classroom, whereby it could mutate into a far more virulent strain - that would be unwise. Sure, they could let it be and it may never become deadly, but why not try and lessen the risk?
I certainly don't think it's a conspiracy.
And I certainly wouldn't panic about it.

Vitamin C has been commonly recognized as a immune system boost. A google search will reveal a number of research articles on the matter.

I'm not crazy about taking a shot of whatever strain that is present now. Viruses do mutate and I don't want to take a chance of having the flu of any sort.
I'm a advocate of taking shots for diseases that have already been eradicated. but I'm going to wait on this flu shot.
I had measles, mumps, chicken pox and rubella, as a child - before there were vaccines. You don't want your kids to get any of these now.
And all you young adults, you don't want this either.
With that said, I'm not getting the swine flu shot. I've had years of flu shots and I hope I'm sufficently immuned.
But, if I die, please tell everyone to take it.
