Will you get the H1N1 (Swine Flu) Vaccination?

Updated on October 23, 2009

As you may know the H1N1 vaccine is currently being shipped out to consumers. There are those who are for getting it and others who are opposed. Some are concerned about the safety of taking a new vaccination which has not been out on the market for a substantial amount of time. Others are confident that it is safe to take.

There is ample information out there to support both sides of the argument. In the past Flu vaccinations have been given out that resulted in some terrible side effects, especially in children. Also the H1N1 Vaccination does contain a form of mercury which makes some people feel uneasy.

The side for 'pro' H1N1 vaccination also have many valid points. The H1N1 Vaccination contains less Mercury than a can of Tuna. The last time a Flu Vaccine had life altering side effects was over 20 years ago. Also not to mention it will provide you with immunities to help fight the H1N1 virus if you contract it.  If you contract H1N1 not only would the vaccination benefit you but also others around you.  As you would be limiting the spread of the virus to others.  

You will eventually be faced with this decision and it is not something you should take lightly.  I recommend doing some research and deciding for yourself if the H1N1 Vaccine is for you.
