I saw some protests on CNN, but I was concerned with what they appeared to be protesting against. The health workers they interviewed were going on and on about the "deadly chemicals and foreign agents being forced into our bodies!" - and I'm sorry, but I just face palmed at that. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but such comments are usually related to adjuvants- which are an essential component of almost all vaccines (they stimulate an immune response, without which many vaccines would be almost entirely ineffective), thus if one follows the logic of such complaints...I would assume they have issue with most any vaccine.

On the other hand, I do respect those who have worries about the safety of this particular vaccine, as it has been rushed into production and those who are concerned that swine flu has been blown out of proportion in comparison to regular seasonal flu.
In the article you posted, it looks like people are more concerned with the latter issues I mentioned.
Leave it to CNN to find the extremists of the debate.

Oh wait!
I just skimmed the last line....it's going to be a nasal mist, not a shot?

Vaccine and flu shot debate aside, as a long time wimp about needles, I have to say that's awesome!

Not to mention, theoretically a more effective means of immunization (for the flu, at least).

I think most of the H1N1 are still shots-a smaller percentage are the nasal mists
